View Website

Acclaimed trumpeter Eddie Henderson brings his formidable quartet to Zinc on Friday, April 26. He's supported by pianist Peter Zak, bassist Essiet Essiet and drummer Mike Clark. Eddie Henderson's wildly diverse and accomplished career began in a most appropriately lofty way: His first trumpet lessons as a young boy were given by Louis Armstrong. It was a connection made through the musical careers of Henderson's parents; his father a singer with the Charioteers and his mother a dancer at the Cotton Club. A native of New York City, Henderson relocated with his family to San Francisco by the age of 14. He studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music from 1954 to 1956 and drew the praise of Miles Davis, a friend of the Henderson family who came to know Eddie while visiting his parents during tour stops in town.
