Step two...

The next phase of online self indulgence.
I made the mistake of monkeying around with my original BLOG located here and ruining it.
I am useless.
I am starting over..and here we go.

Joe Henderson

After my intensely bitter sea of human garbage post I thought I'd better come back with something beautiful...

This is a great ballad written by Gershwin for the musical Porgy and Bess and I love the chord changes...
Joes sound is perfect for this kind of stuff.
For a while I had a hard time with the Scofield/ Henderson pairing but I am diggin it now.
This is a nice version of this tune...

I can't believe that people like Joe Henderson can pass away...they 'are' heaven in my book.

Here is another great version that I ran across today...different of those melodies that just gets ya..
...and no Morin he didn't create the Muppets you Philistine POS...however I think that the older version of Joe is definitely channeling a little Morgan Freeman..

  1. Joe Henderson? Isn't that the guy who created the Muppets? Man I loved the Muppets...Kermit, Fozzie, Mrs Piggy and those crazy old guys in the Balcony... Ah yeahhhh those old guys...
    Oh yeah and Beaker... Man you are right Norland... Joe Henderson was a genius.
