The late saxophonist Joe Henderson will be honored at “A Celebration of the Life and Music of Joe Henderson" at St. Peter's Church in New York City on Monday, October 22nd, 2001 at 7:30pm. St. Peter's Church is located at 619 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street.

The event will feature performances by a number of jazz musicians, including Kenny Barron, Gary Bartz, Al Foster, Charlie Haden, Jimmy Heath, Joe Lovano, Nicholas Payton, John Scofield, and many others. Remarks and remembrances from people who worked with Henderson during his long career will also be shared.



Born in Ohio, Joe Henderson's innovative style led to recordings and performances with such artists as Kenny Dorham, Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Miles Davis, and Herbie Hancock, in addition to his work leading his own group. A performer for over three decades, Henderson recorded more than 20 albums for labels such as Blue Note, Milestone, and Verve, where he recorded the acclaimed, GRAMMY-winning albums Lush Life-The Music of Billy Strayhorn and So Near, So Far (Musings for Miles), among others. The four-time GRAMMY Award winner passed away in June.

“A Celebration of the Life and Music of Joe Henderson" will be free and open to the public.
