Jonathan Butler – The Ultimate Butler

Jonathan Butler - The Ultimate Butler

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Jonathan Butler has been bringing us his mellow guitar and smooth voice for over 25 years. N-Coded-Music has put together a compilation of his music entitled The Ultimate Butler. It features previously released songs during his tenure on N-Coded plus two brand new songs. Vocalist Maysa joins Jonathan on the souful remake of the Leon Ware classic “If I Ever Lose This Heaven” and guitarist Chuck Loeb and saxophonist David Mann are featured on the remake of “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.”

Previously released tracks include “Lost to Love“, “Do You Love Me?“, “After All This Time“, “Dancing on the Shore” (featuring Kirk Whalum on sax) , “Song for Elizabeth” (featuring Dave Grusin on piano), and “What Does It Take (To Win Your Love for Me)” (featuring Candy Dulfer on sax). This album is definitely a welcome addition to your collection.

    Bro. J,
    Long time no post(LOL!)
    I had the opportunity to attend the Atlanta Jazz Festival on Memorial Day. After enduring a 2 hour drive, I was able to enjoy the sounds of Metalwood( and Maysa. I was surprised. She sang very well, but some of her songs sounded alike. I guess I was trying to hear her “Incognito” sound too hard. Nevertheless, she gave a rousing performance. Oakland and Yoshi’s really need to think about putting on a major/major/major/major jazz festival. I love Monterey, but we don’t need to keep driving that far down when we have talent in the backyard. Sooooo, when are you going to open up Yoshi’s competition?

    I just found out Jonathan will be here later this month for an outdoor jazz concert. I was on a mission earlier this year to get all of his stuff on CD. Mission Accomplished!!! Between ebay and I was able to do it. I’m still trying to get all of Michael Franks and also all of Maze.
