Russell Henderson

Saxophonist Russell Henderson had a great reception last time he came to the club. Originally from the Highlands, Russell gained many years of performance experience establishing himself on the Scottish jazz scene before relocating to Leeds, where he achieved first-class honours at Leeds College of Music.

He played lead alto on the Jamil Sheriff big band album Ichythyology and was a soloist on the BASCA award winning Green Seagull with the Tommy Evans Orchestra. Cosier jazz work includes Intimacy of the Blues, a guitar and saxophone project co-lead by Sheffield based guitarist Jamie Taylor which focuses on the music of Billy Strayhorn.

Russell has performed throughout the UK, Europe, China and the USA and has played with such diverse artists as Kenny Wheeler, Derek Watkins, and cult post-punk act Magazine.

Tonight he is accompanied by the Mike Gordon trio.
