Born in Lima, Ohio Joe Henderson started playing saxophone in high school and would become an active participant in the Detroit jazz scene of the mid-'50s.
He furthered his music education at Wayne State University attending classes with future jazz greats Barry Harris, Yusef Lateef, and Donald Byrd.
Though known for a strong presence of hard bop, Henderson's music contained elements from many other genres form R&B and Latin, to avant-garde.
He was featured on nearly thirty albums for Blue Note between 1963 and 1968; five of which were his own.
After signing with Orrin Keepnews' Milestone Records, Joe co-led a group called the "Jazz Communicators" with Freddie Hubbard in 1967 and '68.
His comeback "Lush Life: The Music of Billy Strayhorn" released on Verve in 1992 proved commercially successful and was followed by other artist tribute albums.
That's how we grow.
