Saw him live in New York some years back with McCoy Tyner's trio at the Blue Note. Doubling on vibes and marimba, his playing was not only technically mesmerising but frequently enchanting. The audience got their money's worth in more ways than one that delightful Autumn evening! (I believe this group recorded but haven't been able tp obtain their disc.) Henderson's voice remains uniquely his despite the positive influence of the monumental Milt Jackson. I'll be tuning in to this for sure.
