When it comes to jazz, New Orleans is the city that gave and then kept on giving. The musical breeding ground for such giants of traditional jazz as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton, The Big Easy also gave rise to a present day giant, the pianist and singer Henry Butler, a super-virtuoso and ebullient performer who embodies the buoyant spirit of his birthplace.

Opening the show for finale of the 2017 Healdsburg Jazz Festival will be the Russian River Ramblers, an octet of clarinet (Charles Moller), tuba (Carl Elze), trumpet (Steve Schaffer), trumpet (Mark Lightner), guitar (Joel Hernandez), banjo (Dave Stare), trombone (John Ray) and piano (Joe Meeker), conjures the spirits of such artists as Louis Armstrong, W.C. Handy, and Sidney Bechet to polyphonic perfection.
