Joe Henderson - The Standard Joe

For at least his fourth recording in six years heading a pianoless trio, the great tenor Joe Henderson (along with bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Al Foster) is heard on his own "Inner Urge," an original blues, two lengthy versions of "Body and Soul" and three other jazz standards. This Italian import is particularly recommended to listeners not that familiar with Henderson's playing, for he brings new life to these often overplayed compositions. - by Scott Yanow, AMG

  3. OK, thank you.
    Never heard a record where Joe was sounding bad anyway. He sounded great from his first to his last recording and this one is no exception. Quiet fire!
