Leader: Joe Henderson
Label: Blue Note (BLP 4152)
"Our Thing" is one of the most beautiful of the classic 1960s Blue Note albums. It's Joe Henderson's second recording as a leader, and his second to feature the trumpet and compositions of Kenny Dorham. The lyrical melodies and subtle, detailed rhythm section arrangements of these songs make them a real delight to play and solo on. We also have exclusive "The K.D. Challenge" recordings of these songs, with Minus You tracks for all instrumentalists. This is great for rhythm section players: these songs have independent piano, bass and drum parts that are intricately linked with each other and with the melody.
