‘Mode For Joe’ does not always feature as one of THE must-get Joe Henderson Blue Note albums. An aberration (in my opinion) as this ultra strong set gives the three horns plus piano and vibes space to stretch out. Henderson’ rough edged tenor sax playing is all over this set but is ably supported by Lee Morgan and Curtis Fuller on horns. Cedar Walton is magical on piano and contributes two compositions the aptly titled ‘Mode For Joe’ and ‘Black’. Vibes man Bobby Hutcherson is used sparingly but still stamps his musical personality on the set. ‘Caribbean Fire Dance’ is breakneck paced Latin/West Indian musical feast. Also composed by Joe Henderson is the breezy ‘Granted’ that flows, blows and goes. Joe Henderson, one of the post Coltrane giants of the tenor sax is magnificent on this excellent session recorded on January 27 1966.
