Tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson’s debut as a leader is a particularly strong and historic effort. With major contributions made by trumpeter Kenny Dorham, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Pete La Roca, Henderson (who already had a strikingly original sound and a viable inside/outside style) performs six generally memorable compositions on this CD reissue. Highlights include the original versions of Dorham’s “Blue Bossa” and Henderson’s “Recorda Me.” It’s highly recommended. ~Allmusic
