As an extension of the great piano lineage that includes Jelly Roll Morton, Professor Longhair, James Booker and </span>Tuts<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Washington, Mr. Butler has devised a distinct musical gumbo that blends the ingredients of jazz, blues, rags and funk with the feeling of a second line parade. In this episode, we listen to highlights from Henry Butler's solo performance at the Charles H. Morris Center during the 2010 Savannah Music Festival.</span></div><p> Fri, 07 Feb 2014 02:00:00 +0000 39652 at Savannah Music Festival: Henry Butler Solo
