Bill McHenry is such a King-Kong tenor player. I see him every time I’m in NYC at the Vanguard. I’ve never heard anyone play like Bill. We talked in the back of Vanguard after his first set there with Paul Motian last November about the scoring that he’d done for the film ‘The Visitor’. He played a solo that was just incredible — I’ve never heard anyone solo like that. It was like lightening in a bottle. Really compressed energy that you kept expecting to break loose but he kept it in check. Incredible.
