Product Description

Page One introduced the jazz world to the unusually mature and original young tenor saxophonist, Joe Henderson. "Recorda Me" & "Blue Bossa" have become jazz classics for their mix of Brazilian rhythms with Hard Bop muscle.

Amazon.com

This 1963 session was Henderson's debut as a leader, and it introduced a strikingly individualistic tenor saxophonist, with a distinctively muscular sound and approach, as well as a talent for finding a personal route through the dominant tenor styles of Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. At the time of the session, Henderson worked regularly in a quintet with the veteran trumpeter Kenny Dorham, and the two enjoyed a special chemistry apparent on several Blue Note recordings under their individual names. One unusual facet is the hard-bop take on the then emerging bossa nova, apparent in the first recording of Dorham's now standard "Blue Bossa," on which Henderson's thoughtful construction is apparent, and the saxophonist's own coiling Latin tune, "Recorda Me." Pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Pete LaRoca provide more than solid support for a date that's as often reflective as it is forceful. --Stuart Broomer

This is the only record, which i own, where each track is a notch above the previous, in terms of writing, and improvising...the CD (LP) just gets better and better.
For a jazz newcomer, the songs to lookout for are Kenny's Blue Bossa and Joe's Recorda Me, but don't be fooled. If you buy this record, it won't become one of those records you pull out on occassion to hear 2 songs. You will immediately take to the beauty of the remaining four, especially the last two songs.
Joe Henderson was Blue Note's most requested tenor sideman during the 60s. While his playing evolved (and objectively improved) later on, there is a certain richness in his playing present on his blue note records, that is not always there on his Milestone gigs (while I adore those too.) This album MUST be more acknowledge as a plateau in jazz compostion. It would be impossible to improve upon the record. Not too many are in the same league...Kind Of Blue, Moanin', Love Supreme, Unity, Hubtones, Speak No Evil, Song For My Father, Sweet Rain, Out To Lunch, Saxophone Collosus, and probably about 20 others....but what does this have that others don't?...
...this record is the only record that I believe you can put on and listen from beginning to end, and be consistantly enthralled without one moment of hesitation or impatience for the next soloist to take stage. It is perfect. Every jazz listener who does not own it is doing themselves a major disservice. It sums up the brilliance of the probably the greatest tenor of the past 35 years. I miss you Joe!

I was just 14yrs. old when this album came out,and I bought it by mistake. This was however the best mistake I ever made on music. From the first track to the last I was captivated by every note of every solo. Joe just blew me away with his tone and his style. Bossa Nova was just coming on the scene in America and Blue Bossa was so unlike anything I had ever heard. Joe played tenderly on ballads,but with a hard edge that was missing from other tenors of the time. This album became my favorite and the standrad by which I would judge all others. It's now more than 40yrs. old and still the record I play all tracks from whenever I play it." Long live Joe Henderson"

This album, recorded in June 1963, was Joe Henderson's (tenor sax) first recording as a leader for the Blue Note label, and features Kenny Dorham (trumpet), McCoy Tyner (piano), Butch Warren (bass) and Pete La Roca (drums).
Half of the material here, although very enjoyable to listen to, is not as inspired as we might expect considering the personnel at hand. One of the problems is the relatively short duration of most of many of the solos herein, denying the improvisor the opportunity to explore and develop a myriad of moods and dynamics - a crucial element of any purposeful, emotional offering.
So let's say that none of the performers is consistently at their best in this session, yet there are at least two works here of great significance - 'Jinrikisha' and 'Out Of The Night'. The other stuff is good, but these two are great.
The recording quality is good.
Blue Bossa - This popular Kenny Dorham jazz standard is heard here with the original composer present. Unfortunately, the rendition is quite uninspiring. The solos by Kenny, Joe, McCoy and Butch are straightforward and less inventive than elsewhere in this album.
La Mesha - Another Dorham original, this soulful ballad contains some nice harmonies in the head. Joe solos first, and is rich and colorful in his execution. Kenny follows with a clean, sensitive yet somewhat unemotional display. McCoy, as he often does, plays the standards and ballads in an unoriginal, yet polished fashion, and his work here is no exception.
Homestretch - A hard-bop number by Joe, this piece swings real hard. The head is sharp and choppy. Joe goes first, reeling out a brief yet energetic solo. Kenny and McCoy follow with very brief and uninspired solos. They trade a few fours with Pete, then out.

There are no words to describe one of the best Blue Note or Jazz sessions ever. However, I must stress that this transfer to SACD by Analogue Productions outclasses easily the RVG CD reissue. Get it while you can!

A very enjoyable outing by Henderson! The previous reviews of this recording have really said it all - this is a gem that is surely to be considered in the top 20 or so jazz recording of all time. Brilliantly blending Brazillian influences with bop and hard bop styles, the compositions are interesting, inspired, and beautifully constructed. Although there is a very good unity throughout most of the recording, I sometimes felt that the band was not playing at the emotional level that is on display on "Jinrikisha". It does not in really detract from the recording as a whole, as Joe's performance is excellent accross the entire album. In the final analysis, this is a highly recommnded recording for anyone interested in good jazz music.

The remastering of the original recordings was carefully done, preserving the dynamics of the performance. Very good sound quality on this as well!
