A recent catalog from Mosaic Records offers a limited edition of Chu Berry sessions, as leader and sideman. Included in the copy is this quote from Fletcher Henderson:
Anyone know exactly what Mr. Henderson's referring to? I'm guessing that it might have something to do with constructing melodic lines that play seamlessly through the final barline and continue into the next chorus - but that's just a guess.He's one of the fastest, most inventive and creative minds that has ever been in my band. He doesn't set his choruses, he's continually bobbing up with something he hasn't done before.
