Although overlooked in jazz polls, trumpeter Eddie Henderson (who made his initial impression during the late 1960s/early '70s), recorded some of his final records as a leader in the mid-1990s. For this set, Henderson works quite well with vibraphonist Joe Locke (who also doubles on his atmospheric marimba) and a fine rhythm section during a variety of challenging pieces, including fairly obscure works by Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Locke and Henderson. The closing "The Water Is Wide" has a haunting wordless vocal by Henderson's daughter Lee Menzies; they had not seen each other in 15 years, and it was recorded on the same day that the trumpeter's mother passed away. An intriguing set of post-bop jazz. ~ Scott Yanow
