Joe Henderson - Page One

Listening: Dexter Gordon - A Swingin’ Affair
Essential Listening: Sonny Clark - Leapin’ and Lopin’
Kenny Dorham - Sao Paulo
Herbie Hancock - Takin’ Off
This was his debut as a leader for Blue Note records, at the tender age of 22. He’s joined by tenor giant, Dexter Gordon, Freddie Hubbard, Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Not a bad way to start your career!
Don Wilkerson - Dem Tambourines
Grant Green’s guitar playing here is just phenomenal. Wilkerson is another one of the lesser known talents on Blue Note. He was a fine tenor sax player.
