For more than 40 years, Joe Henderson was near the top of every insider's list of major tenor saxophonists. Yet it wasn't until the early 1990s that he clicked with the general audience. This 1979 recording demonstrates the qualities that finally brought Henderson significant public attention. The warmth, expansiveness, and melodicism of his playing are enhanced by rhythm sections headed by longtime Henderson admirer Chick Corea. The highlights of the dates were Charlie Parker's blues, "Relaxin' at Camarillo," and a beautifully felt version of the ballad "My One and Only Love" that includes a memorable Henderson cadenza.
