Joe Henderson's first recording for Milestone was very much a continuation of the adventurous acoustic music he had recorded previously for Blue Note. For those listeners who do not wish to invest in the tenor saxophonist's "complete" eight-CD Milestone box set, this single-CD is a good place to start in investigating his middle period music. Henderson is featured in a sextet with trumpeter Mike Lawrence, trombonist Grachan Moncur III, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Louis Hayes on a well-rounded set highlighted by "Mamacita," "Chelsea Bridge," "If," "Without a Song" and "Nardis."
This is a nice set of some good old straight ahead jazz ! While I like his blue note recordings more, This CD is right there. You wont go wrong by adding this to your collection.
is one of the best jazz musicians of our generation, although he isn't as heavy as some of the greats such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins, he still has a style which is like a modern summary of jazz music up to him. Joe Henderson is a great musician, and this is certainly a good buy.
