Review: Cool is one thing that Eddie Henderson always is – as his sense of tone and timing just seem to get better and better as the years go on – and that's saying a lot, given that Eddie's legacy goes way back to the 70s! Henderson is one who seems to always set a new bar for his playing as time passes by. That sense of cool is definitely in place here, as is Henderson's subtle swing, even on the ballads , as Eddie works in a tight quintet. Including pianist Kenny Barron
