On “Shuffle and Deal,” trumpet great Eddie Henderson returns with a brilliant all-star quintet featuring pianist Kenny Barron, alto saxophonist Donald Harrison, bassist Gerald Cannon and drummer Mike Clark. In a flawless follow-up to his successful “Be Cool,” this new set perfectly balances blistering bop with exquisite ballads. It features a mix of compositions by both Henderson’s musical and actual families – in addition to pieces by Barron and Harrison, the repertoire also includes pieces by the trumpeter’s wife Natsuko Henderson and his daughter, the pianist, Cava Menzies. Other highlights include Henderson’s opening title track and a quartet of unforgettable ballad renditions including “God Bless the Child” “Over the Rainbow,” “It Might as Well Be Spring,” and “Smile.”

As Henderson approaches his 80th birthday later this year, “Shuffle and Deal” reveals a master at the height of his powers, able to unleash blistering, agile runs as well as explore phrases with an exquisite fragility. Along the way, Henderson famously received his first trumpet lesson from Louis Armstrong, encouragement and mentorship from his parents’ friend Miles Davis, before embarking on a remarkable career that has included tenures with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band, as well as his many indispensable dates as a leader.

“I always have some ideal in my mind when I play. I close my eyes and there’s a blank screen, but I envision elegance and purity,” Henderson shares. “So, I know where I want to go, but I don’t know how I’m going to get there.” He continues on turning 80, “That just happens to be another inch along the way,” he says. “I’m not close to finished. I feel like I’m just beginning.”
