About this show

Ten years after the passing of pantheonic tenor saxophonist and composer Joe Henderson, former associates--drummer Al Foster and bassist George Mraz--convene in an all-star group around what would have been his 74th birthday to celebrate Henderson's enduring legacy as a composer as well as distinctive and influential improver. That legacy includes now standard jazz compositions such as "Black Narcissus," "Caribbean Fire Dance," "Inner Urge," "In'n Out," "Isotope," "The Kicker," "Our Thing," "Recorda Me," "Serenity," "A Shade of Jade" and many more. Special guest pianist Fred Hersch, also a Henderson associate, and tenor saxophonist Rich Perry (who counts Henderson as a significant influence) round out the quartet.
