Billy Butler

Bit of him live, unfortunately (IMO anyway) this clip is muddied up with the screetchifyin' of late version Ruth Brown--grand lady that she was: Atlantic Records got up and running financially on the proceeds of her early 45s such as "Work With Me Henry". Atlantic became known as "the house that Ruth built" a la Yankee Stadium being the house that Babe Ruth built.

Is this Butler?
I'd say that he would well be. My 3 favorite instruments: Hammond, saxophone, and guitar! Lawd, neat stuff:
