Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eddie Henderson (b. October 26, 1940) is a jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player. Henderson's influences include Booker Little, Clifford Brown, Woody Shaw and Miles Davis. Henderson's mother was one of the dancers in the original Cotton Club. She had a twin sister, and they were called The Brown Twins. They would dance with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers. In the film showing Fats Waller playing "Ain't Misbehavin'," Henderson's mother sits on the piano whilst Fats sings to her. His father sang with Billy Williams and The Charioteers, a very popular singing group. At the age of 9 he was given an informal lesson by the trumpet legend Louis Armstrong and he continued to study the instrument as a teenager in San Francisco, where he grew up, after his family moved there in 1954, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. As a young man, he performed with the San Francisco Conservatory Symphony Orchestra.show more
