Orleans Inspiration 
Pianist Henry Butler has many sides. His jazz playing and compositions have been featured on two marvelous recordings (which also featured his voice and impulse for the spiritual form). Now this new disc shows his enthusiasm for R&B. The style is pure New Orleans, his hometown, and the spirit is strong. Meantime, if you listen carefully you`ll hear some subtle improvising- both vocal and keyboard-coming in over the simple R&B chords.
