Henry Butler @ Joe's Pub 8/6/09

Henry is always great no matter what he is doing. His solo shows are quite captivating and engaging. That night was no exception. He indulged us with good old NOLA hits, blues, jazz, ragtime, and even country. Whatever he chooses to do oozes with soul.

He did an amazing rendition of Allan Toussaint's "Working on the Coalmine". He completely reinvented it as a very soulful piece.

He even made The Entertainer sound new, fresh, and exciting. I didn't know it is a Scott Joplin ragtime tune.

He also gave us some great news. He just moved to Brooklyn! I can't wait to see what transpires out of that!
