Share This:

Grammy-Winning Saxophonist and jazz legend Joe Henderson had a long and memorable history with SFJAZZ in San Francisco performing over a dozen times in various settings including a duet with tabla great Zakir Hussain at Grace Cathedral, a salute to Antônio Carlos Jobim with Herbie Hancock, and more. On Thursday, August 14, SFJAZZ formally dedicated the Center’s Joe Henderson Lab, named for the iconic saxophonist, with a week of performances that pay tribute to four of his greatest recorded moments.

The SFJAZZ Center held a Dedication Ceremony on August 14 featuring remarks by SFJAZZ Founder and Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline, as well as Joe Henderson’s two sons – Malcolm Daniel and Kim Vasquez plus his grandson Saivon Romero-Daniel. Further performances include Matt Clark playing McCoy Tyner on August 15, Adam Shulman performing the recently passed Horace Silver’s Song for My Father on August 16, and Michael Zilber playing the  music off Billy Strayhorn on August 17.
