Grammy winning saxophonist Joe Henderson Dies Truely a one of a kind player, Joe Henderson died Saturday at the age of 64. Having had the honor to play with Joe Henderson a couple times while in college, he was truely gifted. He could say something profound in two notes, and you'd go "yeah, that's it". You'll be missed Joe.

Very sad. I loved his sound. Strangely, I had just finished listening to his Big Band Album when I read about his passing.

This has been a tough week. Henderson's Big Band has been a favorite of mine and my parents. I he plays on many disks that I have and his sound and soul have been a great pleasure to have been touched by.
