TRANSCENDER is Patrick Butler's third jazz CD release. This project was prompted by Josh Harris' move to Los Angeles. Harris and Butler played together in bands on the East Coast in the early 80s. Harris' prowess on different woodwinds led to discussions of a project that would feature bass clarinet. The music winds and weaves it's way like a river of guitars, Rhodes pianos, Hammond B3 organs and double track bass clarinets. It is an unusual and relaxing sound, somewhat reminiscent of the Miles Davis sessions with Bennie Maupin.
