Joe Henderson – In ‘N Out


This progressive session from Joe Henderson is a quintessential mid-’60s Blue Note disc. Although a great deal of attention has been placed on the significance of the work of Miles Davis and John Coltrane at that time, Henderson was one of the leaders in the ’60s scene that forged new ground into adventurous areas of jazz. The saxophonist plays sharply with a highly rhythmic style that swings and strides through the modally oriented material of stellar tracks like the blazing title cut, “Punjab,” and the funky mambo “Short Story.” Joining Henderson on the session are Kenny Dorham, McCoy Tyner, Richard Davis, and Elvin Jones, the last of whom drives the proceedings like a madman in one of his best non-Coltrane performances. Also included is “Serenity,” one of Henderson’s best-crafted melodies and an additional take of the dynamic title track.

Personnel: Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone); Joe Henderson; Richard Davis (double bass); Kenny Dorham (trumpet); McCoy Tyner (piano); Elvin Jones (drums).

    Joe Henderson is one of the greats of American Jazz sax, and this session is one of my personal favorites, since I was 16 at the time it came out.
    Henderson’s career spans the decades and the styles, and shows, like several others including the giants (the three Colemans…Hawkins, Ornette and George…) that sometimes fate steps in (like Ornette) or life gives you decades, you just work to perfect your craft and your gifts to blow your soul out to the new crowds that want to hear the truths.

    Most all your RS links are still movin’ and groovin’, and your work and taste in saying historical and critical insights is really amazing to folks who know and love jazz, as well as to the new-comers.
