Musician

Taurey Butler

Hailing from East Orange New Jersey, Taurey began studying piano at the age of seven. He loved playing, but by the time he reached the age of fourteen he found that the musical direction he was heading in was not fulfilling - something was missing. During his last year of high school, a prescient teacher, who was also a distinguished percussionist, Barry Centanni handed Taurey a CD of Oscar Peterson and advised him to listen. He did, and from then on, he knew where he was going. " I didn't know a piano could do that!" he recalls and began to focus more on jazz studies. Taurey went on to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, where he studied Japanese and majored in Electrical Engineering - he left with a BSc and BE and saw himself as, "a Japanese-speaking electrical engineer who loves playing jazz piano." He decided to return to New Jersey to develop and grow as a musician and found himself attending jam session in New York

Having first heard pianist Taurey Butler while vacationing in Montreal, Canada at the House of Jazz, suffice it say that it was a great night of jazz from a trio also including bassist Eric Lagacé and drummer Wali Muhammad.
