JOE HENDERSON- “WIGGLE WAGGLE” SOLO
One of things I enjoy most about living in Japan is hearing great music in the most unlikely places. Out shopping at a grocery store, I might hear some Stanley Turrentine over the speakers. I might hear a gangsta rap song with explicit lyrics at a bookstore, or some Duke Ellington while eating at a family restaurant. It’s great to hear music by chance, music that I didn’t expect and that I haven’t heard in a while. I heard “Wiggle Waggle” recently in some random place and was reminded of how versatile Joe Henderson was as a soloist. He could move from cerebral to earthy in the space of a few bars. Single note riffing, complex arpeggiating, false fingering, note splitting, altissimo wailing, irregular phrasing… Joe Henderson was a bad man. “Wiggle Waggle” is featured on the classic Herbie Hancock album FAT ALBERT ROTUNDA.
