Boy, have I got a lot to learn. Since the lapse of my jazz phobia sometime in the past decade, I can't say that I've listened to a shitload of it, more so than the before maybe but still just sort of dabbling in the names that pop up all the time. Before today I'd never heard of Joe Henderson. I listened to one cut and Ill be damned if another one didn't just get added to the list. This is how it happens. Now that I know that Joe Henderson existed, I'll see his name all over liner notes. That happens all the time, especially in jazz (is there anyone that Gerry Mulligan hasn't met?). So, new name, credit goes to For the Sake of the Song. You ought to check them out. They have a lot of good varied stuff, Ethio-jazz to proto-stoner rock and everything in between. They probably have a huge record collection. Jealous. Sort of.
