Rest in Peace Sam Butera

A true saxophone hero has passed away at 81. Sam Butera was a one-of-a-kind horn player, one of the original honkers, arranger and sidekick to Luis Prima, great bandleader and an all around fine man.

I had the pleasure of hearing him and meeting him several times, and each show is a shining memory for me. He not only played his ass off, but he took the time to talk with me, sign my old records, take a photo...a New Orleans legend, he will be missed!
