Eddie Henderson Quartet

The Eddie Henderson Quartet at Montage was in the mold of "Kind Of Blue" era Miles and there ain't nothin' wrong with that. They did a beautiful version of Blue on Green along with "Someday My Prince Will Come". The bass player looked like a young Richard Nixon but they were all great players. As we were leaving the club I overheard WXXI's Tom Hanson telling someone that he wished they had ended with an upbeat number. Their downbeat sound was perfect for us. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
