A great starter album for those who want to get into Jazz.
Michael Walton
It's one of the most vibrant times in jazz history, and in my opinion, the period of 1962-66 is simply THE greatest ever.
Matt Bailey
If you are a fan of the tenor sax or of Joe Henderson this belongs in your collection.

First off, I don't know what "popular history" the reviewer two down from me is referring to, but jazz in the mid 60's is not "stagnant and uninspired." It's one of the most vibrant times in jazz history, and in my opinion, the period of 1962-66 is simply THE greatest ever. Bitches Brew doesn't even come CLOSE.

Anyways, one of the greatest players in the greatest period is Joe Henderson, widely acknowledged to be one of the last great tenor-men to emerge out of the hard bop/post bop period. All his great 60's albums were made for the Blue Note Label, and all are spectacular: Page One, Our Thing, Inner Urge (my personal favorite) and In n' Out. Mode For Joe is the last, and continues a glorious vein.

That said, it's deffinitely not Inner Urge or Our Thing, and probably not on the level of Page One either. In my opinion, of his 5 albums from this period, Mode for Joe would probably have to be rated 4th. Now, let's get a few things straight. 4th in THIS batch is extremely damn good. Second of all, Joe himself plays amazing here as always, just about as good as the other albums, and his tone in particular is at its dry, biting, overtoned finest. And the way he starts solos! If nothing else, saxophone students should study Henderson just to hear the first few lines of his solos, quite amazing. His solos on "Black" and "Caribbean Fire Dance" are the standouts. The compositions themselves, shared dutes by Henderson and Cedar Walton (with one by Morgan) are excellent too.

The problem that makes this not QUITE as good as the others is the supporting cast. Again, let's get something straight: it's a great supporting cast. But this was a time where Henderson could really stretch out, really expand and dig in...

"Mode For Joe" is the third Henderson-led session released as part of the outstanding RVG remaster series, and the last session he recorded for Blue Note Records.
For this date, Henderson assembled a seven-piece band -- a fairly large band by his standards. The players include big names like Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Bobby Hutcherson, Ron Carter and Joe Chambers. But it is pianist Cedar Walton who is the standout player on this session. Every one of his solo makes you stop and take notice.
Three of the 6 master takes are bona-fide classics: "A Shade of Jade", "Mode For Joe", and "Carribean Fire Dance". This makes Mode For Joe an excellent record, but I don't feel it quite reaches the mark of Henderon's earlier records for Blue Note. I prefer Henderson in more intimate settings, and I think things get a little cluttered with five players vying for solo space on a 40 minute record.
A word on the sound quality: Although this is a Rudy Van Gelder remaster, he was not the original engineer for this session. This was recorded pretty hot, and there are a few points where the players overload (saturate) the tape. Overall, though, the sound quality is acceptable.

Nearly fourteen months after he entered the studio to record the incredible "Inner Urge" (an eternity between sessions in those days), Joe Henderson returned to Rudy Van Gelder's on January 27, 1966 to make "Mode For Joe." Well it was certainly worth the wait! Henderson's last album for Blue Note featured his largest band to date at that time (Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Bobby Hutcherson, Cedar Walton, Ron Carter and Joe Chambers), and compositions that combined the Coltranesque stylings of "Inner Urge" with the tight arrangements of "Page One." All of the album's tracks are thoroughly modern and enjoyable, but it is the multi-layered "A Shade of Jade," featuring lovely cascading vibes play from Hutch in the theme, that will always be my favorite. Out of print for a few years now, it is great to have "Mode for Joe" back via the RVG series.

Mode for Joe is simply put, one of the best jazz albums I've ever heard. This is a superp recording of one of the finest tenor saxophonist the "real" music world has to offer. The rhythem section is completely in sync with each other, it turely is like listening to a conversation between people. Lee Morgans playing is a little rough from what I've heard before, but no less powerful. Joe is at the top of his game in this album , spewing ideas through his horn almost effortlessly. And his sparse use of his Overtone throat slids gives a razor edge to this album. Bobby Hutcherson on the vibes gives this album such a great mood. It gives it such a cool feeling, but doesn't hesitate to bite when it's needed. Over all, some amazing playing from everyone. A great starter album for those who want to get into Jazz.

If you're not counting the Village Vanguard sessions, this all star date (Hutcherson, Walton, Fuller, Lee Morgan, Ron Carter, Joe Chambers) would qualify as Joe's last studio date for the Blue Note label---and what a session to bow out of. Tunes like the title track by Walton, plus "Carribean Fire Dance" and "A Shade of Jade" would be staples in Henderson's repetoire--he would include these in his big band session for Verve. Also this was the first time that we would hear Joe's arranging skills and they're quite remarkable. I'm so glad that RVG has decided to re-issue this date because for once the sound is pristine versus their earlier releases like "Speak No Evil", "Point Of Departure" or "Midnight Blue" which were disasters as far as recording quality (buy the original issues instead).
