Music at the Manton: Eddie Henerson

Back to Full Calendar

Music at the Manton: Eddie Henerson Prodigious bandleader and composer Eddie Henderson, who received his first lesson from legendary trumpeter Louis Armstrong at age nine, performs with drummer Mike Clark, who made history with Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters in the 1970s. They are joined by bass player Gerald Cannon and pianist and Berklee College of Music professor Joe Mulholland in offering an unforgettable classic jazz experience. Henderson worked with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Pharoah Sanders, and Norman Connors before joining the Latin-jazz group Azteca and ultimately fronting his own bands.
This event is presented in collaboration with Jazz in the Berkshires.
