Saturday Jazz Performance! - "Henri's Boogie" - Henri Herbert

The first Saturday of a month usually is just focused on piano performances so this Saturday's Jazz Performance will be all about Henri John Pierre Herbert or just Henri Herbert and his Boogie Woogie playing!

Henri Herbert was born in France and was inspired by the piano playing of Jerry Lee Lewis, Albert Ammons and others. After years of honing his playing skills and developing his own style playing in clubs, pubs and bars, he joined something called the mighty Jim Jones Revue in 2011, where he co-wrote tunes and partook in the recording of their album The Savage Heart.

When The Jim Jones Revue broke up in 2014 Henri began focusing on writing more tunes and performing solo piano.
This year (2015) Henri began his first solo tour in March and launched his own band on June 4th called The Henri Herbert Band.
The videotaped performance below was shot in 2013 at St. Pancras Railroad Station in London and uploaded on July 6th. The video is entitled Henri's Boogie which I can only assume was his own composition. Now sit back and listen to some great Boogie Woogie!
