Trumpet legend Eddie Henderson celebrates the release of his acclaimed new recording, Be Cool. An important protégé of Miles Davis, Henderson is also a soloist who says more with a single note than most manage in an entire chorus. In the ’70s, Dr. Eddie temporarily put his career in medicine on hold to join Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band before releasing a series of jazz fusion records that have become acid jazz classics. His last recording, Collective Portrait, released in 2015 was featured by Downbeat and the New York Times, as well as on NPR’s All Things Considered. Describing his playing in the Chicago Reader, Neil Tesser wrote, “His progressive, assured, and imaginative improvisations roll out in a glorious sun-splashed tone… he seems to dance through his solos, balancing his quick clockwork technique with bursts of bluesy soul.”
