Live at Lewers: Featuring Eddie Henderson

Renowned jazz trumpeter Eddie Henderson returns in the latest installment of the Live at Lewers jazz series, with extraordinary performances on June 7 & 8, 2024 at 8:30pm.

Born in New York in 1940, Eddie Henderson is one of today’s top and most original Jazz trumpet players. He received his first few trumpet lessons at the age of 9 from the legendary Louis Armstrong, then studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music from 1954 to 1957. Around 1956, Miles Davis was a guest at Henderson’s home during a Black Hawk Jazz Club gig and was impressed with Henderson’s ability to perform his famous “Sketches of Spain” without a fluff and
encouraged Henderson to seek his own originality.  After serving in the Air Force, Eddie pursued dual careers: medicine and music. After receiving his M.D. at Howard University Medical School, Henderson received worldwide recognition for his Jazz-trumpet playing from the popular recordings he made with Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi Group during the early 1970’s. Other Jazz performers Henderson has played with include Pharoah Sanders, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Johnny Griffin, Slide Hampton, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Max Roach, Jackie McClean, Dexter Gordon, Roy Haynes and Joe Henderson.
