Here, we got two for the price of one when it comes to great players and jazz lovers: Gene Rebeck and Max Colley III
We are so saddened to hear of the passing of Henry Butler. He'd been ill since last year. If you didn't know about this unique man, click link to read and listen.

"His approach was, 'I'm going to keep playing until this thing overtakes me,'" said his agent, Maurice "He was committed to the band, and to the music, and advocating for the art form. That's who Henry was."

Henry was an honorary JAMM member, and dear friend of some local JAMM folks, who are mourning this great loss.
