The path jazz music has forged is littered with long forgotten musicians, composers and compositions. The John McNeil Bill McHenry quartet has made it their mission to pick up the pieces. The Quartetʼs effort to reintroduce underappreciated tunes and composers is wonderfully documented on their new recording, Rediscovery.
The spirited group is co-led by trumpeter McNeil and saxophonist McHenry and features a great rhythm section, Joe Martin on bass and Jochen Ruekert on drums. Bill McHenry made theTen Best list for 2007 of The New York Times in fifth position, for his latest CD “Roses”


Congratulations to John McNeil & Bill McHenry for their album "Rediscovery" that Mark Stryker (Detroit Free Press) Martin Johnson (Wall Street Journal, Steve Feeney (Portland Press Herald, Maine Sunday Telegram) selected in their top 10 of 2008 for the Village Voice critics poll.
