Joe Zawinul & Scott Henderson


Scott Henderson is one of my favourite guitarplayers for as long as I can remember. His timing and phrasing are the best. I've learned so much from his lesson videos and cd's. The way he plays here in 1989 is incredible. Look at his enormous racksystem. Nowadays he plays using a few pedal and an amp. Also there is the old Boss 1/2 rack SE50 for delay and reverb.

Zawinul: I liked Scott Henderson a lot,” Joe recalls. “I heard him in a trio and he played his ass off. He could play lines and he had a great tone. As a soloist, he was the best guitarist we had.”
