Pick: Trey Sorrells Pays Tribute to Joe Henderson at Capital Ale House, March 13

Posted By on Mon, Mar 12, 2018 at 10:00 PM

Trey Sorrells plays tribute to late saxophonist Joe Henderson at the monthly Richmond Jazz Society Guest Educator series on Tuesday night at the Capital Ale House downtown.

Although never quite a household name like John Coltrane or Sonny Rollins, Henderson was one of the most important players of the '60s heyday of Blue Note records, either leading or appearing on dozens of sessions. He stayed active in the '70s and '80s.

Given that he had a late-career renaissance in the '90s with a series of high concept tributes, it fits for someone to return the favor. With previous experience assembling homages to Prince, Michael Jackson, and even “Jay Z vs. Kanye,” VCU graduate Sorrells is a great choice for this event.

He has assembled a capable, youthful band, including Future Prospect bandmates drummer Cleandre Foster, bassist Brandon Lane, and guitarist Morgan Burrs (also with Butcher Brown) along with increasingly prominent keyboard player, Calvin Brown.

Even for people who think they don’t know Henderson’s work, the songs will be surprisingly familiar.

Trey Sorrells performs on Tuesday, March 13th at 7 p.m. at Capital Ale's Downtown Music Hall. $20
