About

Right between post bop and hard bop, Joe Henderson made a name for himself in the 1960s with five brilliant albums as the leader for Blue Note Records. Like a lot of his peers at the end of that decade, the saxophonist wanted to shake up the genre’s rules and dabble in a certain form of avant-garde. Recorded in October 1973 in Los Angeles and released by Milestone Records the following year, The Elements is one of the fruits of this pursuit of elsewhere jazz. As its title suggests the album is divided in four parts, logically called Fire, Air, Water and Earth, in which Henserson embarked on improvisation segments with renowned adventurers, such as Alice Coltrane on piano and harp, violinist Michael White, bass player Charlie Haden, drummer Leon “Ndugu” Chancler and percussionists Kenneth Nash and Baba Duru Oshun. Overall a gang of sound hunters more inspired than ever, who dare to lose themselves in latino and Indians sounds. This libertarian multi-layered jazz and world music, like countless others at that time, was more than anything else the product of extremely focused and engaged musicians, attentively listening to each other. It’s that engagement that placed these Elements way above the fray… © MZ/Qobuz
