Eddie Henderson is a great jazz musician who has been scandalously underexposed.
His progressive, assured, and imaginative improvisations roll out in a glorious sun-splashed tone that recalls Freddie Hubbard's halcyon days.
A master of bop lyricism and modal mystery, Dr. Eddie Henderson is a worthy heir to the legacy of Miles Davis.

Legendary Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters' trumpeter Eddie Henderson returns with his 2015 effort, Collective Portrait. Recorded live at Smoke Jazz Club in New York City, the album finds the adroit elder statesman re-investigating a handful of songs from his jazz fusion period of the '70s. Joining Henderson here is an equally esteemed lineup featuring alto saxophonist Gary Bartz, pianist/Rhodes keyboardist George Cables, bassist Doug Weiss, and drummer Carl Allen. ~ Matt Collar
