Henry Butler, Quintessential New Orleans Pianist, Is Dead at 69

Mr. Butler's music was encyclopedic, precise and wild. He was acclaimed as a member of a distinctively New Orleans piano pantheon alongside Jelly Roll Morton, James Booker, Tuts Washington, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John. He was also a forthright, bluesy singer who often used New Orleans standards as springboards for improvisation.

His nearly lifelong blindness didn't stop him from becoming a modern master of New Orleans music

Henry Butler, the multifaceted New Orleans pianist and singer whose style encompassed several strains of jazz as well as elements of blues, pop, classical, funk, gospel, R&B, and Caribbean music, died (...) in New York.

Over the course of his career, Butler played virtually every major club and festival in the United States, as well as venues in Brazil, France, Norway, Italy, Japan, Australia, and more. For over forty years, he conducted workshops, clinics, and master classes throughout the country. He also developed a camp for blind and visually impaired teen musicians, the subject of a 2010 documentary, The Music's Gonna Get You Through.
