Album Review

Bill McHenry first emerged as one of the regulars at the Manhattan night spot Smalls and has gone on to become a promising player, whether the tenor saxophonist is a sideman or leading his own group. McHenry isn't one whose style or sound is easy to describe, as he is constantly experimenting.

Roses is an edgy release that takes several hearings to reveal its inner beauty, so don't be intimidated by its surface complexity.
