Bill McHenry is a bandleader on the rise. He has been an important asset to the New York City jazz scene for years, although a little below the radar. McHenry started as a member of the celebrated Small’s Jazz Club community that has produced many contemporary stars, including Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Guillermo Klein. Since then, McHenry’s rich saxophone voice has enriched a number of amazing ensembles including Klein’s Los Guachos, the legendary drummer Paul Motian’s Quintet and his own Quartet.

On his first recording for Sunnyside, Roses, McHenry is joined by the aforementioned Motian along with Ben Monder (guitar) and Reid Anderson (bass). This recording of forward leaning original compositions will definitely put McHenry on the map as a leader that should be watched.

"While he's in the line of left-of-center tenor sax predecessors like Dewey Redman, the 35 year-old McHenry has developed a unique sound that blends free form and structured elements into an organic whole. He's that rare free player with a gentle tone and an unhurried demeanor. Even in the midst of whirlwind soloing, he appears precise, focused and in control. Together the quartet engages in some of the most exciting group improvisations put on record this year; from the meditative title cut to the plaintive 'The Abyss Opens Up' to more revved-up tunes like 'The City' (with Monder channeling Jimi Hendrix and McHenry quoting Sonny Rollins); this is a band that clearly knows one another well and plays together with a rare cohesion." - Joel Roberts, All About Jazz
