Our Thing

I can’t believe I’ve posted 25 times and haven’t mentioned Joe Henderson.  There’s not an album of his I don’t like, and his work as a sideman for Blue Note, Atlantic, CTI et al. is unparalleled.  Whether I’m listening to his early quintet work, his 70s electric period, or his later return to swinging standards, Joe’s distinctive style shines through.  This one is from his second album, recorded with veteran trumpeter Kenny Dorham and a cast of players just beginning their recording careers: Andrew Hill, Eddie Khan and Pete La Roca, who passed away just months ago.
