'I DON T LIKE TO WRITE IN ALL OF THE NOTES,' says legendary trumpeter Eddie Henderson with a laugh, 'Miles always said, just write a sketch and let all the musicians fill in. He d say, 'A collective portrait is better than a self portrait. ' It was advice that resonated with a young Eddie Henderson who, even after 40-something years, still relies on it as a primary organizing principle for his music. Eddie is someone who thrives on requires really a group that embodies the risk-taking and creative freedom that Miles encouraged and for Collective Portrait he has chosen some of the very best: Gary Bartz, George Cables, Doug Weiss and Carl Allen.
