Eddie HendersonFor All We Know ... CD
Furthermore, 2010. Used ... $6.99
The lyrical side of Eddie Henderson – laid out beautifully in a lovely quartet recording that also features John Scofield on guitar! The album's mix of trumpet and guitar is extremely haunting – and Eddie hits a warm note that's mighty nice – almost a nod back towards some of his 70s modes, yet without any R&B touches – pure jazz all the way, couched in Scofield's strong tone – with added support from Doug Weiss on bass and Billy Drummond on drums. The album's a great balance to some of Eddie's other work in recent years – a great reminder of this side of his talents, on titles that include "Be Cool", "Missing Miles", "Popo", "By Myself", "Sand Storm", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Jitterbug Waltz".

✨✧ Eddie HendersonComin' Through ... CD
Capitol/EMI (UK), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet smooth and funky work from Eddie Henderson – a nice move from his more righteous work of the mid 70s, into an R&B-tinged sound that would take him far in years to come! The sound is surprisingly great, and still pretty darn righteous – thanks to some great production by Skip Drinkwater – working with Eddie in the same funky fusion mode as on his records with Bobbi Humphrey from the same time. There's a warm compressed groove to the session that's really great – and Eddie's working with a top-shelf batch of players that include Patrice Rushen, Paul Jackson, Julian Priester, and George Cables. Titles include "Movin On", "Say You Will", "Source", "Open Eyes", and "Beyond Forever". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonInspiration ... CD
Milestone, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully understated set from Eddie Henderson – one of those great little albums that really opens up the more we give it a listen – and a great reminder that Eddie's got so many gems nestled in his catalog, especially in later years like this! There's a mix of modes going on here – some ballad tracks that are almost Miles Davis-like, in that style that Henderson was moving towards during these years – but there's also some great numbers that get more modal and soulful, of the style of his Steeplechase recordings, with a warmly lyrical vibe. The group's a great part of the sound here – with Kevin Hays on piano, Joe Locke on vibes, Ed Howard on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – and Grover Washington adds some great soprano sax on two numbers too. Titles include "Little B's Poem", "Peresina", "Jinriksha", "I Remember Clifford", "Phantoms", and "Oliloqui Valley". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonPhantoms ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great straight session from Eddie Henderson – one that seems to bring all the spaciness of his 70s work into a tightly-crafted acoustic mode! The group's got a really great sound – thanks to the pairing of Joe Locke on vibes and Kenny Barron on piano – and Henderson's trumpet soars out over the top of the tracks with a majesty steeped in years of experience, and a style that's exploratory, but never too self-consciously so. The group's completed by Wayne Dockery on bass and Victor Lewis on drums – and titles include "Beauty In The Bambles", "Phantoms", "Dolphin Dance", and "Milestones". CD also features 2 previously unissued tracks – "Jitterbug Waltz" and "In Walked Lila". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonSo What ... CD
Columbia/Eighty Eights, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful Eddie Henderson albums we've heard in years – a richly modal session with lots of classic influences, recorded beautifully, and with a feel that will make it a real standout! The set list includes some killer jazz standards – like Wayne Shorter's "Prince Of Darkness" and "Footprints", Miles Davis' "So What" and "All Blues", and Monk's "Well You Needn't" and "Round Midnight" – not to mention great versions of "Green Dolphin Street", and "Old Folks". And even though the tunes are classics, they're played with the fresh modernism of the mid 60s Miles Davis quintet – a style that's got angular edges, but also some deeply soulful moments – played with elegance by a group that includes Bob Berg on tenor, Dave Kikoshi on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Billy Hart and Victor Lewis on drums.

✨✧ Eddie HendersonSunburst ... CD
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky fusion doesn't get any funkier than this – and the album's one of the greatest 70s recordings by jazz funk trumpeter Eddie Henderson! The album's got a harder edge than a lot of Eddie's other records of the decade – razor sharp rhythms crackling away underneath a sublime space-heavy mix of keyboards, bass, saxes, and Eddie's funky trumpet. The group includes work by Bennie Maupin on reeds, George Duke on keyboards, Julian Priester on trombone, and Harvey Mason on drums – and the great Skip Drinkwater is at the production chair, cutting the grooves here with a lot more fire than in some of his later work! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Involuntary Bliss", "Galaxy", "Kumquat Kids", and "Explodition". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonThink On Me ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Key proof that Eddie Henderson is just as great of a player in an acoustic jazz session as he is in an electric one – and an excellent quintet album that features Joe Locke on vibes, Kenny Barron on piano, Wayne Dockery on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Henderson's still got a lot of darkness and depth in his playing – recaptured, almost, from his righteous early 70s work, and still nicely intact from the sweeter R&B fusion of the early 80s – and on the record, he leads the group through a rich set of changes that breathe new hope into all things soulful in jazz! Titles include "Restless Dreams", "Ceora", "Bilal", "Think On Me", "Revelation", and "Seven Beauties". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonManhattan In Blue ... CD
Video Arts (Japan), 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the classiest sets we've ever heard from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – at least in his later years – and a deeply thoughtful album that's filled with surprises! Eddie's moving past just his strong ability to blow here – and he's really working in a unified group formation that has bold arrangements really adding a lot of spirit to the set. Players are all great – and include Joe Locke on vibes, Lewis Nash on drums, Kevin Hayes on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Grover Washington on soprano sax – making a rare late appearance here. The best tunes have a flowing, fluid quality that almost recalls some of the best moments on 60s Blue Note that mixed hardbop, modern, and exotic strands in jazz – but there's also a sense here that's got some of the composure of other strong New York sets for the Japanese market as well. Tunes are especially well-chosen – and the album features versions of Billy Harper's "If One Could Only See", Bobby Hutcherson's "Little B's Poem", Kenny Barron's "Phantoms", Joe Henderson's "Jinrikisya", and Herbie Hancock's "Oliloqui Valley".

Eddie HarrisPeople Get Funny ... CD
Bellaphon (Germany), 1987. Used ... $6.99
A later album from reedman Eddie Harris – but a set that still continues some of his best funky styles from the 70s Atlantic Records years! In fact, the record may well be the last that Eddie ever cut in this mode – a real surprise at a time when some of his other sessions were more traditional – and the record's filled with lots of very groovy surprises that include great Fender Rhodes from William Henderson, plus more electric piano from Eddie – who also sings a bit too, in that great raspy tone of his. Rhythms are often pretty great, too – funky, in an offbeat way – thanks to sweet basslines from Larry Gales and drums from Carl Burnett. Titles include "People Get Funny When They Get A Little Money", "Ski Ball", "Three Quarter Miles", "Silver Plated", "Hal Strange", and "Step Down To The Top". CD

✨✧ Kenny BarronLive At Fat Tuesdays ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1988. Used ... $9.99
Soulful genius from Kenny Barron – an excellent quintet outing from the late 80s, and one that really benefits from the presence of horns added to the trio! Kenny's work on piano is always great – and his sense of scope, soul, and timing are presented perfectly here – but what we really appreciate is the way that Eddie Henderson's trumpet and John Stubblefield's tenor flesh out the longer tunes on the set, and bring in even more colors that Barron's own writing and performance. The rest of the quintet features Cecil McBee on bass and Victor Lewis on drums – and tracks include the great originals "Lunacy", "518", and "Sand Dune" – plus "There Is No Greater Love" and "Misterioso".

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic/Dark Of Light ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1973. Used ... $15.99
Righteous early jazz work from Norman Connors – a pair of albums back to back on a single CD! Dance Of Magic is a landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". Dark Of Light is a sensational bit of righteous soul jazz – right up there with the best work on Strata East and Black Jazz from the time! The sound here is full, soulful, and spiritual – as Connors heads up a large ensemble that includes luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Eddie Henderson, Gary Bartz, Carlos Garnett, Buster Williams, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – all working together in a formation that's free spirited, yet tightly unified – often at a level that's even stronger than their own recordings! The album mixes a few longer tracks with shorter numbers – in a mode that reminds us a lot of Garnett's classic Black Love album – and titles include "Song For Rosa", "Black Lightnin", "Dark Of Light", "Butterfly Dreams", and "Laughter".

Pete YellinMellow Soul ... CD
Metropolitan, 1998. Used ... $6.99
Mellow soul is right – because this set swings like some great lost 70s session on Muse or Mainstream! Pete Yellin was playing way back in the day, and his work on alto and soprano is joined here by Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Chick Corea on piano, Carl Allen on drums, and Vincent Herring on additional saxes. The best cuts on the record have a post-Coltrane searching mode that's augmented with a tighter hardbop approach – and Pete Yellin produced the set with a no-nonsense approach that gets the best out of the group's sound. Titles include "Shaw Thing", "Mellow Soul", "Song For Lynn", "Dr J", and "Warm Valley". CD

✨✧ Billy HarperIf Our Hearts Could Only See (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1997. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A recent recording by tenorist Billy Harper – but one that follows strongly in the tradition of his 70s classics recorded in Japan! Like those records, this one was done for the Japanese label DIW – and features Harper in a free sort of setting that really lets him unfold with spiritual majesty! Tracks are a bit shorter than some of the side-long classics from the 70s – but no less great – and feature that tremendous Harper tone and hard-burning, soul-searching energy that always grabs us within the first few notes of any track. The group's a well-honed lineup that features pulsing rhythms from Francesca Tanksley on piano, Clarence Seay on bass, and Newman Baker on drums – and Eddie Henderson also joins the group on 3 tracks. Billy sings a bit on the record – in a beautifully spiritual way that's very much in keeping with his tenor work, and which is a whole new dimension of his talents – and titles include "Egypt", "Speak To Me Of Love Speak To Me Of Truth", "The Seventh Day", "World Without End", and "The One Who Makes The Rain Stop".

Metropolitan, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic recent album by Billy Harper – with a sense of greatness, majesty, and spirituality to rival his best 70s work! The album's got Harper working in a very classic mode – with a soulful quartet that features his yearning searching tenor blowing out over backing by piano, bass, and drums. Eddie Henderson adds some trumpet on a few tracks – but the main action is up to Billy, who never falters in his creativity, and is as nimble as ever when it comes to working out his unique spiritual jazz vision. Titles include the sublime "Soul of An Angel", plus "Thine Is The Glory", "Credence", and "Was It Here . . . Is It There?". CD

✨✧ Erik TruffazRevisite ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The spacey work of Swiss trumpeter Erik Truffaz gets the remix treatment, in a great set of chillout grooves! Truffaz has a great sound – kind of a blend of late 60s Miles Davis, and mid 70s Eddie Henderson – and his first few albums for Blue Note France have been some of our favorite of the past few years. This set takes tracks from those sets and has them remixed by a variety of producers – all of whom do a good job of respecting Truffaz's original vibe, and uniquely spacey sound. Titles include "More" remixed by Pierre Henry, "Bending New Corners" remixed by Alex Gopher, "The Dawn" remixed by Mobile In Motion, "Sweet Mercy" remixed by Bugge Wesseltoft, "Siegfried" remixed by Goo, and "Less" remixed by Pierre Audetat.

✨✧ Tim WarfieldSpherical ... CD
Criss Cross (Denmark), 2015. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tribute to the music of Thelonious Monk, but one that's got plenty of Tim Warfield's own spirit as well! Orrin Evans handles the piano here, and while he's certainly equipped to bring out the angularity of Monk's music, he's got his own way of approaching the tunes that are nicely fresh – that blocky, chunky style we love in Evans' playing – which seems to grab melody and rhythm together in a single handful, and cast out these bold sounds that really inspire the rest of the group. Warfield's right at home in the setting – stretching out especially well on tenor, but also playing soprano sax as well too – and the rest of the group includes excellent trumpet from Eddie Henderson, plus bass from Ben Wolfe and drums from Clarence Penn. Titles include "Blue Hawk", "Off Minor", "Ugly Beauty", "Oska T", "Coming On The Hudson", "Gallop's Gallop", and "That Old Man". CD

✨✧ Grover Washington JrAll My Tomorrows ... CD
Columbia, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from reedman Grover Washington – recorded in his later years, but a set that's actually got more of an acoustic style overall – one that goes back to the roots farther than any of Grover's fusion records! Washington's a great straight player in this setting – filled with soul on tenor and soprano sax – and working with top-shelf small group players like Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Bobby Watson on alto, and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Guitarist Romero Lumbambo arranged one great Brazilian-tinged number – and other arrangements are by Grover, Larry Willis, Slide Hampton, and Freddy Cole – who sings on two tracks too. Titles include "E Preciso Perdoar", "Happenstance", "All My Tomorrows", "Nature Boy", "Flamingo", and "Estate". CD

Warner (Japan), 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent session that was one of Herbie Hancock's first free-flowing fusion records of the 70s! Herbie's playing Fender Rhodes with a sound that's at once cosmically beautiful, soulfully fragile, and spacily grooving – and he gets some excellent accompaniment from an all-hip group of players that includes Benny Maupin on bass clarinet and flute, Buster Williams on bass, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Julian Priester on trombone – plus percussion from Jose Areas and Ndugu Chancler. The roots of later classics like Sextet and Flood all start with this session – and the album contains 3 long tracks – "You'll Know When You Get There", "Ostinato", and "Wandering Sprit Song". CD

✨✧ Herbie HancockSextant ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come! At the height of his 70s powers, Herbie really takes off into space with this set – moving away from more commercial music, and hitting a groove that's totally righteous, totally electric, and completely mindblowing! The album's got a bit of a Headhunters vibe, but it also veers off into some very wild analogue electronics too – a mix of Fender Rhodes, clavinet, melotron, and echoplex processing – augmented by additional work on Arp from Patrick Gleeson. Other players on the set include Bennie Maupin on reeds, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and the great Buck Clarke rounds out the combo on percussion. The album only features three long tracks – "Rain Dance", "Hidden Shadows", and "Hornets" – but all of them are killers! CD

Freddie HubbardSuper Blue ... CD
Columbia/Mosaic, 1978. Used ... $14.99
A sweet late 70s set from Freddie Hubbard – a slight move away from some of his highly-electric sides of the CTI years, yet one that still has some of the most soulful qualities of that work! Freddie's trumpet has a nicely spacious quality throughout – one that's flowing, and almost glowing at time – cascading along with qualities you might be more likely to hear from Art Farmer on some of the gentler numbers, yet really bursting out with that old Hubbard dynamism on the rest. Other players include Joe Henderson on tenor, Hubert Laws on flute, Kenny Barron on piano and keyboards, Ron Carter on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – and George Benson also guests on guitar on one number too. A good number of the titles are originals, and tracks include "Super Blue", "To Her Ladyship", "Take It To The Ozone", "The Gospel Truth", and "Theme For Kareem". CD also features 3 bonus alternate takes! CD
