  Joe Henderson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Joe Henderson (April 24, 1937 - June 30, 2001) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist.
Although Henderson's earliest recordings were marked by a strong hard-bop influence, his playing encompassed not only the bebop tradition, but RandB, Latin, and avant-garde as well.
Henderson's sound can float prettily like Stan Getz or Lester Young but he can also dig in with the bluesy fervor of T-Bone Walker or the intensity of John Coltrane.

 The Compositional Style of Joe Henderson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
On first glance, one might take a Joe Henderson tune for granted and think that the normal clichés and approach would work, but once you got into the song and noted that the chord cycles were unusual, you knew he was throwing down the gauntlet as far as “making the changes” was concerned.
In “Out of the Night,” Joe offers whole and half step motion for the chord changes of the melody statement, which as is often true in his compositions could either be used during the improvising choruses or one could revert to the normal minor blues changes.
Although for the most part Joe didn’t write much new material after the ‘60s, his legacy during that decade stands as one of the great pillars of modern jazz composition and are required “reading” for all subsequent generations of improvisers worldwide.

 Arkadia Jazz: Thank You Joe Artists Notes
I always felt that Joe Henderson deserved to be highlighted in a big way and this is my attempt to help put the flood lights on him.

Everything Joe plays is subtle and rather understated, so if you aren't listening to what he is playing, as a pianist you will just get in his way, which is why he played trio a great deal of the time.
