Celebrated quintet Butcher Brown reimagines Patrice Rushen’s fan-favorite “Remind Me,” a special tribute to be released on September 30, the GRAMMY Award-winning artist and composer’s birthday. On this track, Butcher Brown collaborates with vocalist Alex Isley, daughter of guitarist Ernie Isley of the legendary Isley Brothers. Alex recently teamed up with Spotify to share her take on the Isley’s classic famously covered by Aaliyah, “(At Your Best) You Are Love.”
“We are psyched to welcome RnB royalty Alex Isley to help us pay tribute to the inimitable Patrice Rushen on her birthday,” says Butcher Brown.
Music has been a part of Isley’s life ever since she was born and for nearly a decade now, she has made a name for herself. The singer, songwriter and producer has shined as a vocalist on songs by Scarface, Kendrick Lamar, and PJ Morton, among other artists spanning rap, jazz, and pop.
“‘Remind Me’ is one of my favorite songs ever,” Isley says. “Getting to recreate this with Butcher [Brown] is an honor. They can do it all!”
The release of “Remind Me” comes hot on the heels of Butcher Brown’s August run at the Blue Note New York and the June 4 release of their five track EP ENCORE, which was recorded during the same time as their major label debut #KingButch on Concord Jazz.
In October, Butcher Brown will continue their tour in Europe with performances at the Mondriaan Jazz Festival, Stockholm Jazz Festival and Ronnie Scotts in the UK, among others.
