“a trumpeter and composer who has clocked up years of achievements...”
Ray Butcher is an excellent, fluent and melodic trumpet player whose extensive experience includes work with the likes of Dr John, Mica Paris, Robbie Williams, Beverly Knight, Robert Plant, Soweto Kinch and Jean Toussaint. He was the trumpet soloist on the Grammy nominated CD 'Burning Lights' by US Grammy winner Chris Tomlin and appeared on outtakes from the Cookie Monster iphone ad seen by 3.5M YouTube viewers! Ray's own band, The Ray Butcher Band, has made appearances on comedies “Very Important People” and “The Morgana Show” and he also had extensive coverage on BBC1's period drama “Landgirls”. Tonight Ray will be performing material from his latest album “Lion’s Den”, describing the music as “easy to listen to contemporary jazz originals influenced by the Miles Davis, Blue note period”. The original launch had to be cancelled due to lockdown and was to feature one of Ray’s close collaborators (and friend of the Club), saxophonist Christian Brewer, who very sadly passed away earlier this year. This gig is dedicated to his memory.
