Morning Shift

Piano virtuoso Henry Butler takes us down South

Henry Butler has been called “arguably the greatest living proponent of the New Orleans piano tradition”. From Jelly Roll Morton straight through to Allen Toussaint, Butler’s ability to play, discuss and teach the ties that bind Jazz, Blues, Boogie-Woogie and Classical, make him an American musical treasure. Mr. Butler joins Morning Shift for some jamming and some chatting in our Jim & Kay Mabie Performance Studio. Photo: Flickr/Elvert Barnes
