Wikipedia : This day (June 30, 2001), in San Francisco, California, died Joe Henderson, an American jazz tenor saxophonist who played with many of the leading American players of his day and recorded for several prominent labels, including Blue Note.
Joe Henderson @The Hard Bop : Here’s hoping that the young gentleman from Lima, Ohio, can cash in on all of his wonderful talents–his arranging, composing and tenor “saxophoning” extraordinary. Here’s hoping that his skies remain blue and his horizon clear, and that he receives his due, and that all who hear him will support the boy from “Soulsville.”
Joe Henderson@last.fm : From 1963 to 1968 Joe Henderson appeared on nearly thirty albums for Blue Note. The recordings ranged from relatively conservative hard-bop sessions to more avant-garde explorations. He played a prominent role in many landmark recordings: Horace Silver’s swinging and soulful Song For My Father, Herbie Hancock’s dark and densely orchestrated Prisoner, and Andrew Hill’s avant-garde Black Fire. In 1967, there was a notable, but brief, association with Miles Davis’ famous quintet featuring Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams.
