'Cheers to Joe Henderson': A celebration of 'Page One' at 60
Lauded musicians Josh Evans and Marcus Strickland join Milestones to discuss the debut album from saxophone giant Joe Henderson. Together they talk about Henderson's harmonic and rhythmic innovation; the essentiality of collaborator and friend Kenny Dorham; and why it's always the right time to give flowers to one of the most important yet somehow underexplored musicians of our time. As members of Christian McBride's New Jawn, they share thoughts on the special relationship between the saxophone and trumpet in small group formats and why Henderson and Dorham are at the top of the list of dynamic duos.
