Butterfly is the latest creation from the mind of Hudson Valley guitarist, producer, and composer Ken McGloin. The material is based on reconstructed songs from the 90s as well as McGloin's original songs. Drummer Dean Sharp (Sonny Rollins, Moby) and pianist/vocalist Akie Bermiss (Badal Roy, Soul Khan, Aabaraki) will round out the group... though there may be one or two special guests.
Ken McGloin is a bit of a local curiosity. While he has played with people like Dave Douglass and Hank Crawford... and was, at one point, the leader of such forward-pushing groups as White Boys On Swing and Lunch Meat... he has spent nearly an entire decade working exclusively in the background as a side-man, record producer, and teacher. Butterfly represents he re-emergence as a leader and performance artist.
