Masters on Masters - an oral history, concert, broadcast and celebration
In a career spanning more than forty years Joe Henderson made a
huge contribution to jazz. From 1963 to 1968, Joe appeared on
nearly thirty albums for Blue Note, including five released under
Joe played a major role in Horace Silver's swinging and soulful Song
for My Father, Herbie Hancock's dark and densely orchestrated The
Prisoner, Lee Morgan's hit album The Sidewinder and "out" albums
with pianist Andrew Hill (Black Fire 1963 and Point of Departure,
1964) and drummer Pete La Roca (Basra, 1965). In 1967, Joe was
a member of Miles Davis's quintet featuring Herbie Hancock,
Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams.
Renee Rosnes knows a thing or 2 about saxophonists. She was a
member of James Moody’s band for 2 decades, and she also paid
her dues with Joe Henderson.
