Globalvillagelogog3web_small SPECIAL: The final Monday of every month, we present Global Village at the Savannah Music Festival, a monthly concert series showcasing world music artists and groups who have appeared at the prestigious annual festival that takes place each spring in Savannah, Georgia. This time, in conjunction with the December Music of New Orleans feature, it’s one of that city’s finest pianists, Henry Butler. An artist equally at home in jazz, R&B, blues, and classical music, but deeply rooting in the city’s second line sensibility, Butler was one of the artists who took classic New Orleans piano into the future. We’ll hear him in three different settings – with a trio, solo, and in a Crescent City grand finale with several guests from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
