Bill Henderson

By Published: July 3, 2009
Now in his "third career," the California-based vocalist looks forward to coming east to perform at the 2009 Litchfield Jazz Festival. "I love the idea of the Litchfield Jazz Camp," Henderson says. "You have to extend the jazz to the next generation. Let them be exposed to the good stuff." And this 83-year-old gentleman is ready to do just that. As he puts it: "There's a young guy inside of me and he's waiting to get out."
