The four lengthy performances included here were recorded at Tokyo’s Junk Club and find Henderson backed by a local rhythm section, with drummer Motohiko Hino going on to become on of his country’s finest players. A sign of the times, we find an electric piano in the line-up, although it doesn’t seem to distract at all from the overall excellence of the date. The opening "’Round Midnight" is a tour-de-force for Henderson, who goes it alone at first with the rest of the crew dropping in a bit later. "Out ‘n’ In" is, of course, a new take on the title track of Henderson’s Blue Note disc IN ‘N’ OUT. The beguiling "Blue Bossa" is another one from the Blue Note days, while the closing "Junk Blues" is a simple 12-bar structure that clocks in at almost fifteen minutes. Throughout the program’s 45-minute duration (you have to wonder why we have no bonus tracks since live dates usually yield a good deal of material) Henderson’s lines crackle with emotion and the backing ensemble more than keeps up with him. Highly recommended.
