The TRC all stars is an ever morphing group of musicians that get together on special occasions for one off projects.
This time we are delighted to have some of the oldest TRC star team meet with bright new players.
From the bottom up:
the powerful rhythm of Betamax on drums and Ruth Goller on Bass, Jean de Talhouet on guitar, with Will Barry on keys and Jonathan Chung on Tenor. One fiery quintet of highly creative souls.
The point of departure: a bunch of carfully selected tunes focusing on Joe Henderson's songbook and a cheeky number by Herbie Hancock, but the band's eclectic influences will undoubtedly take the music to new territories!
Jonathan Chung — Tenor sax (Glasshopper)
Wil Barry — Keys (Fellow Creatures)
Jean de Talhouët — Guitar (Super Best Firiends Club)
Ruth Goller — Bass (Vula Viel / Melt Yourslef Down/ Lets Spin)
Max Halett — drums (Soccer 96/ Comet Is Coming)
Jazz saxophonist and composer Joe Henderson could best be described as a renaissance man. Creating a style unique from the dominant saxophonists of his early career -namely John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins – Henderson became the consummate leader and sideman. His name has become synonymous with power and grace on the tenor saxophone, and has long been revered in musical circles for his distinctive sound and powers of invention. Although Henderson’s earliest recordings were marked by a strong hard-bop influence, his playing encompassed not only the bebop tradition, but rhythm and blues, latin, and avant-garde as well.
Henderson has had a remarkably consistent career, carving out his own reputation through technical excellence, songwriting ability, and a stunning diversity that made him a sought-after sideman early in his career. He made his mark at Blue Note records as a member of the Kenny Dorham band and went on to record with the Horace Silver group that made the classic Song for My Father. A master of composition, his songs “Recorda- Me” and “Inner Urge” have become jazz classics.
