The Eddie Henderson -
Greg Bandy Quartet

The Eddie Henderson - Greg Bandy Quartet, under the guidance of the legendary trumpeter Eddie Henderson and stellar drummer Greg Bandy, has as its current supporting members: pianist and synthesist Roger Friedman and bassist David Certain.  The group has drummer Bandy to thank for its origins as it was Mr. Bandy, who after 25 years of living in New York City, moved back to his hometown of Cleveland and formed the nucleus of the group.   As the Greg Bandy Trio the group not only performed in its own right, but also accompanied touring artists that came through Cleveland and other Midwestern cities.  The group played with such notables as saxophonist Gary Bartz, seminal singer Jimmy Scott, flautist Dave Valentin, trumpeter Terrence Blanchard, saxophonist Mario Rivera and many others including Eddie Henderson.  In 2004, Greg moved back to Harlem and once again became immersed in a busy performance schedule in New York and throughout the world.  Bassist David Certain moved to San Francisco and arranged for the trio to accompany Dr. Henderson at the Bach Society in Half Moon Bay.  The audience was witness to a magical blend of creative finesse and the Eddie Henderson - Greg Bandy Quartet was born.  The quartet's repertoire includes standards in swing, Latin and funk/fusion styles, continuing in the tradition of Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan.  It is a veritable American music variety show with breadth and depth and a "fire" that is rarely found today.
