Eddie Henderson: Everything Changes

Read "Eddie Henderson: Everything Changes" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Eddie Henderson made his name in Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi band in the early 1970s, at the dawn of jazz-fusion--a new frontier. It was undoubtedly a launching pad that saw the New York-born trumpeter go on to play with Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers, Elvin Jones, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders and McCoy Tyner. Yet ...

Read "Sorcery" reviewed by Rob Garratt
