The well-produced recording features original compositions by Aimée (and frequent collaborator Jeff Deegan) as well as rarely performed material from the legendary Canadian artists Joni Mitchell, Jann Arden and others. Joining Aimée onstage at her Launch Event will be the skilled ensemble that appears on her new CD, including CHRIS PRUDEN on piano, Fender Rhodes and organ; BRANDON WALL on electric guitar, JEFF DEEGAN on upright and electric bass and ROBIN CLAXTON on percussion and drums. JAZZ BISTRO is located at 251 Victoria Street in downtown Toronto. Nouvelle gourmet cuisine is served before and during the performance, which begins at 8:00 PM.

About The World is Alright...

THE WORLD IS ALRIGHT has been produced by Aimée Butcher, Jeff Deegan and Robin Claxton, and features an eclectic, moving and impressive roster of tunes - including not only original compositions by Aimée (often in collaboration with Jeff Deegan), but some tasty (and stylistically related) tunes from the canons of Canadian luminaries Joni Mitchell, Jann Arden and others. First up is the original title track, "The World Is Alright" (Aimée Butcher/Jeff Deegan). Butcher's sensual and powerful alto easily wraps itself around the clever lyric and upbeat irony of this appealing tune. Pianist Chris Pruden delivers a masterful acoustic piano solo, and his chord-comping on organ also creates a soulful, bluesy aura.



Next up is the moving and contemporary ballad "All I See" (Aimée Butcher/Jeff Deegan), which also displays Aimée's stylistic range and breathtaking, sumptuous tone. A true highlight is the third tune up - Joni Mitchell's song of longing, dis-illusion and spiritual redemption, "Hejira"(Joni Mitchell). Perfectly placed percussion by Robin Claxton and Brandon Wall's mystical, droning electric guitar set the stage for Aimée's nothing-short-of-perfect vocal performance. I have no doubt that Joni herself will be thrilled with this version, as it achieves clear, thrilling dynamics and a level of jazz sensibility that is not as clearly defined in the original version. In fourth position is "Autumn in Paris"- another well-written original by Aimée. This evocative tune is a fine example of the composing and performance skills of Aimée Butcher, and once again features stunning rhythm section work, including a dynamic bass performance by Jeff Deegan.



Jann Arden and Robert Foster's melancholy ballad "It Looks Like Rain" is 5th up, and clearly illustrates Aimée's access to her deep, emotional vocabulary. The three final songs on THE WORLD IS ALRIGHT include two modern and gorgeous originals, "Stay or Drive" and the delightfully jazz-infused "December Dove" (written with Jeff Deegan).



Closing out this exceptional recording is the rhythmic and intriguing "High and Dry" (Yorke/O'Brien/Greenwood/Greenwood/Selway), which has a decidedly poetic spin, an engaging melodic line and delicious compositional structure. More fabulous electric guitar work from Brandon Wall is also prominently featured.







About Aimée Butcher... Aimée Butcher is gifted and innovative jazz vocalist and composer, who has been making a name for herself in Toronto and Canada at large. Born in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, Aimée first began singing in her church choir at the tender age of five. Her passion and talent for music continued to evolve and transform from that point. While attending Cawthra Park Secondary School in Mississauga, Aimée was first introduced to jazz. After being exposed to the music of the legendary jazz vocalist, Ella Fitzgerald, there was no turning back. Aimée spent much of her childhood studying classical, jazz and pop musics, and eventually graduated from the University of Toronto, where she earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Jazz Performance (with Honours).


Aimée has shared the stage with an array of top Canadian jazz musicians, including Heather Bambrick, Andrew Jones, John MacLeod, and Shannon Butcher. She has also performed alongside international jazz luminaries such as Tim Ries, saxophonist and keyboard player with "The Rolling Stones". While at The University of Toronto, Aimée studied with performers and jazz educators Christine Duncan, Chase Sanborn, Geoff Young, Mike Murley, Alex Samaras and Phil Nimmons.

Aimée continues to be a much in-demand side-woman and bandleader, appearing regularly at many established clubs and venues as "The Aimée Butcher Quintet", most notably at "The Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar"in Toronto, where highlights have included performances with fellow emerging jazz artists including Chris Tsujiuchi, Robin Claxton and the a capella vocal group, "The Wind and The Water". In addition to performing, Aimée also teaches piano and voice, both at her home studio and at dedicated music centres throughout the greater Toronto area. Aimée Butcher is incredibly excited to be releasing her debut CD, THE WORLD IS ALRIGHT on May 26th at her home town's foremost music performance venue, JAZZ BISTRO.
