Denver was fortunate to have bluesman Henry Butler in our community. We will always remember how you played those ivories. Those hands boogie that keyboard like no one else’s. Classically trained voice took us from the blues, to someplace you have never been before and would give anything to return to, again and again. It was something you got Henry that we will forever miss. Butler was  considered a premier advocate of the great New Orleans jazz and blues piano tradition, Butler was a ten-time Pinetop Perkins (formerly W. C. Handy) Best Blues Instrumentalist Award nominee.
