SFJAZZ Collective's Miguel Zenón: Notes on Joe Henderson's "Recorda-Me"

“I wrote this arrangement using the bass line from the intro of the original recording by Joe (from Page One) as the main motive. This is enhanced by layers of horn backgrounds under the main soloist, which build and climax towards the end of the chart, where the melody appears just once and fades to the end. The main groove is inspired by Afrobeat music, and I wanted to channel some of that with the arrangement as well.”
