O’s Notes: Henry (p, organ) is an excellent entertainer and you’ll feel that all the way through. His partners here are Vasti Jackson (g), Nick Daniels III (b) and Raymond Weber (d). They play with a New Orleans style funk that just feels good. Most of the tunes are new compositions written by Butler. There is also a nice cover of “I Stand Accused”. The honky tonk beats, ragtime bluesy piano, bottlenecking on guitar and steady stream of blues lyrics make this another fine release from Basin Street.
