Eddie Henderson called on an all-star quintet for the straight-ahead ‘Be Cool’. The band includes drummer Mike Clark(Headhunters), pianist Kenny Barron and alto player Donald Harrison. The title is appropriate as this swinging CD is cool, and digs into sixties post Bop and modal Jazz. ‘Be Cool’ written by Eddie’s wife Natsuko is an outstanding flowing piece. ‘Loft Funk’ is a staccato groove that nods a little towards ‘Freedom Jazz Dance’. Eddie records excellent covers of Miles’ ‘Fran Dance’, Woody Shaw’s ‘Moontrane’ and Trane’s ‘Naima’. Harrison’s ‘The Sand Castle Head Hunter’ has a funkier edge in a Jazz sense. Eddie has never sounded better on this live set.
