Wikipedia : This day (June 30, 2001), in San Francisco, California, died Joe Henderson,, tenor saxophonist.
@The Hard Bop : Here’s hoping that the young gentleman from Lima, Ohio, can cash in on all of his wonderful talents–his arranging, composing and tenor saxophoning extraordinary.
@allmusic : Although his sound and style were virtually unchanged from the mid-’60s, Henderson’s signing with Verve in 1992 was treated as a major news event by the label (even though he had already recorded many memorable sessions for other companies).
@last.fm : From 1963 to 1968 Henderson appeared on nearly thirty albums for Blue Note. The recordings ranged from relatively conservative hard-bop sessions to more avant-garde explorations.
