Guitarist Scott Henderson's name may not be all that familiar to you. He's equally at home playing fusion, jazz, blues or rock and you can hear him on albums by Jean Luc Ponty, Players (not the band Player!), Tribal Tech, Hissanol, Greg Bisonette, Chick Corea, Jeff Berlin and Vital Tech Tones (with drummer Steve Smith and bassist Victor Wooten). This second solo album features vocals by Thelma (Don't Leave me this Way) Houston. A nice guitarist with a pleasing tone. He also writes damn fine music.

Biography by Scott Yanow
One of the finest fusion (as opposed to crossover) guitarists of the 1980s and '90s, Scott Henderson's explosive playing is often teamed up with electric bassist Gary Willis in their group Tribal Tech. Originally most influenced by rock, Henderson (who grew up in West Palm Beach, FL) played in local funk and rock bands. In 1980, he moved to Los Angeles to attend the Guitar Institute of Technology, studying with Joe Diorio. After graduating, he became a teacher himself at GIT. Henderson played with Jeff Berlin and Jean-Luc Ponty, and in 1985 toured with the original version of Chick Corea's Elektric Band. During 1987-1989, he worked on and off with Joe Zawinul's Syndicate, later focusing on Tribal Tech as his main band. As a leader, Scott Henderson has recorded for Passport, Relativity, Bluemoon, Atlantic, and Zebra. Starting with 1994's Dog Party, the guitarist made a transition from the world of jazz to the blues world, where his blues-rock fusion became the primary focus of his music career. But unlike many of his blues-rock contemporaries, his music was filled with the sort of odd time signatures and unique touches that are cornerstones of his jazz work.
