Joe Henderson may have been the most significant tenor saxophonist to emerge in the 1960s. Gary Giddins wrote that he is ..."an irresistibly lucid player, whose adroitness in conjuring stark and swirling riffs contributed immeasurably to two of the most durable jazz hits of the '60s, Horace Silver's 'Song for My Father' and Lee Morgan's 'The Sidewinder.'" In addition to those tunes, in previous programs in this series, we have also heard Kenny Dorham's 'Blue Bossa' from Henderson's first release Page One, his own composition 'Caribbean Fire Dance' from his Mode for Joe release and two tunes from Andrew Hill's Point of Departure. In this hour of Jazz at 100, we will continue to explore Henderson's work as a leader and his role as a valued sideman, mining the seams between hard bop and the avant-garde as the 1960s progressed.
