"Henderson’s guitar soars high, sometimes tender. Sophisticated, technical and soulful, his playing bristles with intelligence, never crossing the line into excess,” wrote music critic Jim Ferguson in Guitar Player magazine about the legendary Scott Henderson, who will perform with drummer Dennis Chambers and bass player Jeff Berlin at Tel Aviv’s Reading3 club Saturday night.

Following his big breakthrough as Chick Corea’s Elektric Band’s first guitarist (1986), Henderson continued heading the jazz-fusion scene as co-leader of the group Tribal Tech, with which he recorded nine albums, on top of four solo albums of blues-rock. His first solo album, Dog Party, was named Blues Album of the Year by Guitar Player.

Despite the fact that he was crowned Best Jazz Guitarist in 1991, the 57-year- old Henderson still claims to be more of a blues-rock player. But it’s his beautiful tone and striking ability to blend blues, rock, funk and jazz, creating a soulful and unique voice on the guitar, that has become his trademark.

Growing up in south Florida, Henderson played from an early age with many different bands in the clubs, listening mainly to rock, blues, funk and soul. His interest in jazz developed later, when he discovered John Coltrane, Miles Davis and others.

After moving to Los Angeles and recording with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band in Los Angeles, he formed Tribal Tech in 1984 with bassist Gary Willis and recorded his nine critically acclaimed albums.

Known as a virtuoso player with a unique sound and amazing technique, Henderson was also a member of the fusion super-group Vital Tech Tones with bass player Victor Wooten and drummer Steve Smith.

Chambers, a member of Carlos Santana’s group, gave a concert at Tel Aviv’s Reading club two months ago, and Berlin was here as a guest speaker at the Rimon school of music.
