Joe Henderson
(b. 4/24/37 - Lima, OH       d. 6/30/01 - San Francisco, CA)

Title: Page One
Personnel: Joe Henderson (tenor sax), Kenny Dorham (trumpet), McCoy Tyner (piano), Butch Warren (bass), Pete La Roca (drums).
Recorded: 1963
Label: Blue Note
Comments: A completely underrated player by the general public until the 1990's, Joe Henderson is one the most important players on his instrument. Influential to every sax player who's come after him, his unique style and sound is quirky, bold, and wry, all at the same time. After only a few bars you just know it's Joe "Hen." These two CD's from the 60's are just classic must haves, as are most of his other Blue Note releases.
Title: Inner Urge
Personnel: Joe Henderson (tenor sax), McCoy Tyner (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass), Elvin Jones (drums)
Recorded: 1964
Label: Blue Note

Title: The State Of The Tenor
Personnel: Joe Henderson (tenor sax), Ron Carter (bass), Al Foster (drums).
Recorded: 1985
Label: Blue Note
Comments: Still rather unknown to the general public in the 80's, this double CD is an incredible document of Joe in his most common format of the last 15 years of his life - the sax/bass/drums trio.
