Saxophonist Johnny Butler and drummer Kassa Overall have a good working rapport going. As a duo, they make explosive, jamming music that inhabits the chewy center in the crossing Venn diagram of hip hop, jazz, and electronic music. Last year, Butler’s Raise It Up EP was a cool little surprise, and they’re back again with a super glitchy video of the pair performing Billy Joel’s “Movin’ Out” live at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall. Check it out after the jump.
