Abstract

This study provides an overview of the life and career of Joe Henderson, who was a unique presence within the jazz musical landscape. It provides detailed biographical information, as well as discographical information and the appropriate context for Henderson's two-hundred sixty-seven recordings. His life is presented in the following categories: Early Years; Blue Note Period; Milestone Period; Intervening Years; and Verve Period. Thorough study and collation of published materials produced the framework of this document, while original interviews with those knowledgeable of Henderson's life and career provided insight into his personality and career decisions. The resulting body of research is the first and only thorough study of Henderson, and it provides critical historical contributions to jazz scholarship.
