Intermediate/Advanced. This exciting set includes 15 of the most-played jazz songs of the 60s and 70s by the legendary jazz giant Joe Henderson.

Here is a great article about Joe, his style, and his harmony from artist and Aebersold author Bobby Stern. You can also here Bobby play-along with the title track:
Joe Henderson Tribute
While Joe is not often associated with Jazz Education, many “happy campers” will remember him as a teacher and performer at the Aebersold workshops in the 1970s and 80s Summer Jazz Workshops.
