Jazz at the Bechtler: Eddie Henderson
National trumpet and flugelhorn player, Eddie Henderson joins the Ziad Jazz Quartet this month.
Eddie Henderson (born October 26, 1940) is an American jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player. He came to prominence in the early 1970s as a member of pianist Herbie Hancock's band, going on to lead his own electric/fusion groups through the decade. Henderson earned his medical degree, and worked a parallel career as a psychiatrist and musician, turning back to acoustic jazz by the 1990s.
