Henry Butler, solo, and the Russian River Ramblers - Healdsburg Jazz Festival
(Published: May 09, 2017)

When: Sunday, June 11
Where: Raven Theater, 115 North St., Healdsburg, CA 95448
Time: 7:00 PM
Tickets: $45, $30

When it comes to jazz, New Orleans is the city that gave and then kept on giving. The musical breeding ground for such giants of traditional jazz as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton, The Big Easy also gave rise to a present day giant, the pianist and singer Henry Butler - a super virtuoso and ebullient performer who embodies the buoyant spirit of his birthplace. Butler can play it all, from early to modern jazz, with plenty of New Orleans R&B peeking through as well. For his debut festival performance though, Butler will concentrate on traditional New Orleans jazz. Offering up a thoroughly entertaining history lesson while exhibiting his extraordinary talents as a piano stylist and soulful vocalist, Butler will play work from such key figures as Scott Joplin, Morton, Oliver, James P. Johnson and Fats Waller before saluting the monumental pianist Professor Longhair and other early R&B heroes from New Orleans.
Opening the show for finale of our 2017 Healdsburg Jazz Festival will be the Russian River Ramblers, an octet of clarinet (Charles Moller), tuba (Carl Elze), trumpet (Steve Schaffer), trumpet (Mark Lightner), guitar (Joel Hernandez), banjo (Dave Stare), trombone (John Ray) and piano (Joe Meeker), conjures the spirits of such artists as Louis Armstrong, W.C. Handy, and Sidney Bechet to polyphonic perfection.
