Joe Henderson Mode For Joe on LP

Remastered & Reissued as Part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign

One of the most original tenor-saxophonists to emerge during the early 1960s, Joe Henderson always had an immediately recognizable sound and the ability to shift easily between hard bop and free jazz, sometimes within the same phrase. The greatness of Henderson can be heard in every note. Of his Blue Note albums, 1966's Mode For Joe is unique in that it is the only one to feature Henderson with a group larger than a quintet. When one considers that its septet also includes Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller and Bobby Hutcherson, and that the repertoire includes the original versions of "A Shade Of Jade," "Mode For Joe" and "Free Wheelin'," it is obvious that this is a must have album for all serious music collections!
