Related music by Henry Butler
Butler is a local legend in New Orleans, but rarely tours other parts of the country; most any time of the year he can be found playing in one of New Orleans’ famous night spots. What makes him great — but admittedly difficult for record companies to market — is that he constantly pushes himself in new directions as a musician. He can’t be pigeonholed as blues, jazz, or even rock & roll, though he performs all three genres with impeccable taste, depth of understanding, and freshness of appreciation. Butler’s playing also reflects influences like gospel and classic R&B.
