Yesterday - still concentrating on my BN collection.

Joe Henderson's best? I think so.. As it says on the obi of this SHM issue  "Jewels of the 4000 Series".

It is (positively) tough to choose the "best" Joe Henderson BN (leader) date .... and some of his sideman dates are probably even stronger .... ?

Always a pleasure to hear those 1956 Prestige dates with the first great quintet. I think one of the first jazz records I ever heard was "Steamin" which was quite available during that time, but with another cover than the original one. Things like this turned me to jazz when I was a boy.....

My initial response was that between some lost Herbie Hancock BN session or Paul Bley record from the late 1960s, I'd heard the gist of all this before, and maybe that's true. But continued listening is showing some subtle compositional constructs that those earlier musics didn't really have. so,,,game on, keep listening.

I am a big fan of  Steve Kuhn's recordings on Concord, Reservoir and Venus. But there are some Kuhn sessions on other labels that were disappointing to me. I don't care for most recordings on ECM, so thought this Steve Kuhn Trio CD would not be to my taste. The first time I listened to it I had a luke warm reaction. But after playing it a couple more times I found it more and more appealing. I now like it quite a bit.

A discussion on another forum about Paul Buckmaster's work with Elton John and others made me pull out his collaboration with Miles Davis.
