Album Notes
If one were attempting to design a prototype for the quintessential contemporary musician, Russell Gunn is the model,
with a resume that includes two Grammy nominated solo projects, A Pulitzer Prize in music for “Blood On The Fields” with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Cee Lo Green’s first solo projects “Perfect Imperfections” and “Soul Machine”, Maxwell “Unplugged”, Lou Reed “Set The Twilight Reeling”, and Branford Marsalis’ “Music Evolution”. Russell also provided horn arrangements and world tours with D’Angelo’s “Voodoo” tour and Ne-Yo’s “Year Of The Gentleman” tour.

Gunn's latest musical adventure is the result of a solid year of planning: A new ensemble that incorporates improvisation over the base of Heavy Metal - inspired by the work of the Brecker Brothers “Heavy Metal Bebop” and the music of the classic “Black Sabbath” lineup. Russell Gunn & Elektrik Butterfly are a new force on the music scene. The new album “Elektrik Funeral” is a collection of new and fresh takes on classic Black Sabbath material. Special guests include Robert Glasper, Andre Hayward, Branford Marsalis, and the legendary James Brown and Funkadelic horn man Fred Wesley.

Featured tracks include gritty and intricate arrangements of “Lord of This World”, “Electric Funeral”, “War Pigs”, “Hand Of Doom”, “Wasp/Behind The Wall Of Sleep”, “Changes”, “Wicked World” and the classic “Iron Man”.
