Tribute: Joe Henderson Hotplate Festival

We formally dedicate the Joe Henderson Lab at SFJAZZ Center, named after the iconic saxophonist, by paying tribute to four of his greatest recorded moments. Check out the Joe Henderson Hotplate Festival this week!

Joe Henderson Hotplate Festival

Joe Henderson had a long and memorable history with SFJAZZ, performing over a dozen times in various settings: a sacred concert duet with tabla master Zakir Hussain (now a SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director) at Grace Cathedral, a salute to Antônio Carlos Jobim with Herbie Hancock, and the 1993 tribute night “We Love Joe” featuring Henderson's quintet with John Scofield, Charlie Haden and Al Foster, his Big Band, and the Kronos Quartet!
