Eddie Henderson: For All We Know
For All We Know is Henderson's most recent solo recording, and it stands as a distinctive statement from an elegant, happening player. My PopMatters review can be found HERE. Henderson plays originals and standards, sounding a good bit like Miles Davis or Art Farmer but a whole lot like himself. His playing has a lovely fluidity, and the construction of his solos is logical and clear. He can buzz and skip and catch a neat rhythmic wave. He is modern but not mechanical. His playing is pretty.
Eddie Henderson: I bet you have some other brilliant solo work I've been letting slip past me. Time to start hunting it down.
