Vocalist Bill Henderson

8 posts in this topic

Vocalist Bill Henderson celebrates his 75th birthday this weekend, March 19th.

To honor that fact I'll be featuring 2-hours of Bill's recordings on my radio program Friday night, March 18th from 8p-10p. The program goes from 7p-midnight

You can hear it in it's entirety by going to:

www.wgbh.org/jazz

Click on Jazz from Studio four

Enjoy Bill's music!

For those of you who would like to send birthday wishes to Bill, weather you tune in to the show or not, you can do so here.

I'll be sending Bill a copy of the program and would be happy to include your messages

I'll try to tune in for this, Steve. Please send Bill a very grateful happy birthday wish from me--I frequently turn to his VeeJay recordings and his album with Oscar Peterson for on-air play. Much appreciation from this Indiana jazz fan!

His version of "My Funny Valentine" from that Vee-Jay set is my all time favorite vocal of that well done standard. Wish him a happy birthday for me and tell him also how much a kick I get whenever I recognize him in the various small film roles he gets.

RIP, Bill. 

Sad that his passing will no doubt go largely unnoticed with the near-simultaneous high profile obituaries of Gato and Merle.

The sound of his voice was the kind that you never forget - R.I.P.

He was also an decent actor, seemed to be a nice man and was easy to work with.

His brother Finis was another story.
