Tune in to KUVO/KVJZ this Friday, December 6 at 4pm as New Orleans piano legend Henry Butler performs live from the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio. Butler has been referred to as “… arguably the greatest living proponent of the classic New Orleans piano tradition…” Henry Butler doesn’t play piano – he tells stories. The rise, swing, and rumble of his fingers channel sounds as diverse as that of his New Orleans birthplace: jazz, Caribbean, classical, pop, blues, and R&B, among others. A ten-time Pinetop Perkins (formerly W. C. Handy) Best of Blues Instrumentalist Award nominee, Henry brings his vivid, inquisitive personality into every performance.
