Jazz master Eddie Henderson is “a veteran trumpeter whose deft feel and plush sound made him a central figure in the worlds of jazz-funk and hard-bop in the 1970s” according to The New York Times. His most recent recording , Be Cool, was widely praised and proves that he’s making some of the most important music of his career. The Chicago Reader says , “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.”
