Henry Butler at Snug Harbor

Before the flood, we could take Henry Butler for granted.  He played all over town and was as likely to show up at a gig as a guest as he was to headline with his various bands or as a solo act.  Now the chances to see him play in New Orleans are few and far between.  This is his first visit back since the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and he will be playing with his traditional jazz band, the Steamin’ Syncopators.  Leroy Jones will be playing trumpet in a show that is sort of a warm up for an even bigger room.  Tomorrow night the band will be in Washington, D.C. for a show at the prestigious Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.  You can listen to it live on the web at 4:45 PM at http://www.kennedy-center.org/explorer/live/.
