Jesse Jones & Craig Butterfield - Eclipse (CD)

$ 15.99


Release Date: 03/08/19

Steeped in the melodic earthiness of folk and roots, crafted with the harmonic rigor of classical chamber music.

The third collaboration between bassist Craig Butterfield and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Jones, this album provides an even deeper glimpse into the duo's compositional imagination. Featuring an extended sound palette (Butterfield is heard on both bass and piano, and Jones on no fewer than six different instruments), the duo forms a versatile and unusual partnership. Be it virtuoso finger-work in tunes like Caroline or Canebrake, poly-metric funkiness in A-25 or Heavyweight, ethereal expansiveness in the title track, or the lullabying Plunky's Waltz with its solo-piano reprise, Eclipse is an album full of soaring melody orbited by harmonic nuance and rhythmic vibrancy.

THE JONES/BUTTERFIELD DUOis comprised of world-renowned bassist Craig Butterfield and award-winning composer/instrumentalist Jesse Jones, both music professors at the University of South Carolina and the Oberlin Conservatory respectively. Their music is informed by a collective study of roots, jazz, rock, and classical practices, as well as various world music traditions.
