LIVESTREAM: Eddie Henderson Quintet Cover

Livestreams are Available for 48 Hours in Every Time Zone Eddie Henderson – trumpet Vincent Herring – alto saxophone Peter Zak – piano Nat Reeves – bass Mike Clark – drums “His musical wisdom, gleaned during decades spent on the best jazz bandstands, informs every unerring note.” – Downbeat Trumpeter Eddie Henderson leads a spectacular quintet of close collaborators with alto saxophonist Vincent Herring, pianist Peter Zak, bassist Nat Reeves, and drummer Mike Clark. It has been an important year for Henderson: He was the subject of a compelling biographic documentary of his incredible life, Eddie Henderson: Uncommon Genius and he released an acclaimed new album in 2023, Witness to History, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of his 1973 recording debut as a leader, Realization. Henderson’s “deft feel and plush sound made him a central figure in the worlds of jazz-funk and hard-bop in the 1970s,” according to The New York Times. The Chicago Reader adds, “His progressive, assured, and imaginative improvisations roll out in a glorious sun-splashed tone… he seems to dance through his solos, balancing his quick clockwork technique with bursts of bluesy soul.” The eternally youthful Henderson has proven again that he is still making some of the most important music of his career into his 80s.
