EDITORS’ NOTES

Put veteran trumpeter Eddie Henderson with master pianist Kenny Barron and New Orleans-bred alto saxophonist Donald Harrison, and the music will go deep. Bassist Essiet Essiet and drummer Mike Clark also bring versatility and momentum to a varied set, including Henderson’s transformation of “After You’ve Gone” (a Swing Era burner) into a lush ballad and John Coltrane’s “Naima” into a bright waltz. With Miles Davis’ “Fran-Dance” and Woody Shaw’s “The Moontrane,” Henderson honors fellow trumpet greats in compelling style.

Beautiful take on After You’ve Gone

It’s usually upbeat but this version is a very cool ballad. Check it out.

About Eddie Henderson

Eddie Henderson was one of the few trumpeters who was strongly influenced by Miles Davis' work of his early fusion period. He grew up in San Francisco, studied trumpet at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but was trained to be a doctor when he permanently chose music. Henderson worked with John Handy, Tyrone Washington, and Joe Henderson, in addition to his own group. He gained some recognition for his work with the Herbie Hancock Sextet (1970-1973), although his own records (which utilized electronics) tended to be commercial. After Hancock broke up his group, Henderson worked with Art Blakey and Mike Nock, recorded with Charles Earland, and later, in the 1970s, led a rock-oriented group. In the '90s, he returned to playing acoustic hard bop (touring with Billy Harper in 1991) while also working as a psychiatrist. ~ Scott Yanow
