Bett Butler & Joël Dilley

#sxsw #BettButler&JoëlDilley


Listen to My Melancholy Baby

Partners in music, business, and life, bassist/composer/producer Joël Dilley and songwriter/vocalist/pianist Bett Butler have performed together for over two decades in configurations from jazz trios to small orchestras. With a repertoire ranging from original world fusion to straight-ahead jazz to beloved standards, Dilley aspires to give a human voice to the bass, with all its various emotional tone colors, while Butler frequently uses her voice as an instrument, often soloing in unison with piano lines. Their latest album AMERICAN SAMPLER presents stories from the Great American Songbook stripped to their very essence: a musical conversation between friends and lovers, rife with passion, pathos, and humor.
