Jazz Unlimited March 15, 2015 will present “The Music of Joe Henderson-Part 1.” Tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson came on the scene in 1963. He brought a unique sound, style and conception to his music. This show will feature him with his own groups and such musicians as Grant Green, Bobby Hutcherson, Horace Silver, Woody Shaw, the Wynton Kelly Trio, Lee Morgan, Larry Young, Andrew Hill, Charlie Haden and Al Foster. In addition, his compositions will be sung and played by Judy Niemack, Janice Borla, the Blue Wisp Big Band, James Williams, Stanley Clarke and the Conrad Herwig “Latin Side of Joe Henderson” group. Henderson died in 2001 after a 38 year career.
