    Fletcher Henderson’s orchestra, discographically active since 1921, was the seminal influence on the birth of Big Band Swing Style. This collection covers the most creative period of his career ranging from the middle Twenties, when he was often refferred to as the “black Paul Whiteman” to 1934 when he disbanded and joined the Benny Goodman organization, becoming chief arranger of the “King of Swing”’s band.
    Listening to these masterworks in chronological sequence tells the story the birth of swing, really.
    Besides great arrangements by himself and other top names like his brother Horace and Benny Carter, we have a chance to hear some of the greatest soloists of the period: trumpeters Rex Stewart and the nearly forgotten Bobby Stark, trombonists Jimmy Harrison, Benny Morton and Dicky Wells, clarinetist Buster Bailey and, above all, the one and only saxophonist Coleman Hawkins.

    When I read Gary Giddins' claim that Coleman Hawkins had invented bebop in the early 1930's, I was skeptical -- until I got a CD copy of Fletcher Henderson's A Study in Frustration and heard this for the first time in years. Here are all the altered chords and advanced harmonies the boppers thought they were inventing a decade later, and Hawkins (who composed this) and Red Allen just eat those crazy chords alive. Great record!!!

    Fletcher Henderson was very important to early jazz as leader of the first great jazz big band, as an arranger and composer in the 1930s, and as a masterful talent scout. Between 1923-1939, quite an all-star cast of top young black jazz musicians passed through his orchestra, including trumpeters Louis Armstrong, Joe Smith, Tommy Ladnier, Rex Stewart, Bobby Stark, Cootie Williams, Red Allen, and Roy Eldridge; trombonists Charlie Green, Benny Morton, Jimmy Harrison, Sandy Williams, J.C. Higginbottham, and Dickie Wells; clarinetist Buster Bailey; tenors Coleman Hawkins (1924-1934), Ben Webster, Lester Young (whose brief stint was not recorded), and Chu Berry; altoists Benny Carter, Russell Procope, and Hilton Jefferson; bassists John Kirby and Israel Crosby; drummers Kaiser Marshall, Walter Johnson, and Sid Catlett; guest pianist Fats Waller; and such arrangers as Don Redman, Benny Carter, Edgar Sampson, and Fletcher's younger brother Horace Henderson. And yet, at the height of the swing era, Henderson's band was little-known.

    Fletcher Henderson, in full Fletcher Hamilton Henderson, Jr., original name James Fletcher Henderson, byname Smack, (born Dec. 18, 1897, Cuthbert, Ga., U.S.—died Dec. 29, 1952, New York, N.Y.), American musical arranger, bandleader, and pianist who was a leading pioneer in the sound, style, and instrumentation of big band jazz.
    Fletcher Henderson was very important to early jazz as leader of the first great jazz big band, as an arranger and composer in the 1930s, and as a masterful talent scout. Between 1923-1939, quite an all-star cast of top young black jazz musicians passed through his orchestra, including trumpeters Louis Armstrong, Joe Smith, Tommy Ladnier, Rex Stewart, Bobby Stark, Cootie Williams, Red Allen, and Roy Eldridge; trombonists Charlie Green, Benny Morton, Jimmy Harrison, Sandy Williams, J.C. Higginbottham, and Dickie Wells; clarinetist Buster Bailey; tenors Coleman Hawkins (1924-1934), Ben Webster, Lester Young (whose brief stint was not recorded), and Chu Berry; altoists Benny Carter, Russell Procope, and Hilton Jefferson; bassists John Kirby and Israel Crosby; drummers Kaiser Marshall, Walter Johnson, and Sid Catlett; guest pianist Fats Waller; and such arrangers as Don Redman, Benny Carter, Edgar Sampson, and Fletcher's younger brother Horace Henderson. And yet, at the height of the swing era, Henderson's band was little-known.
