JOE HENDERSON AND STEVE KUHN ON “EIDERDOWN”

SKuhn

These two solos are from the classic Pete La Roca Blue Note outing called BASRA. The record features Henderson and Kuhn along with La Roca and Steve Swallow on drums and bass. The song “Eiderdown”, composed by Swallow is a 40 bar composition (A A1 B A), 8 measure A sections and a 16 bar bridge. It’s a great blowing tune. The chords in the A sections evoke a modalish, post boppy kind of vibe while the bridge has a more straight ahead feel. Henderson and Kuhn both deliver compact, chorus long solos full of great ideas…
