Joe Henderson - Black Is the Color (1972) + Black Narcissus (1976)

Two phenomenal records from legendary jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson. Black Is the Color marks Henderson's first usage of studio overdubbing, while Black Narcissus finds him incorporating synthesizers into the mix for a heady, spaced-out sound. Both records are fueled by hard, conga-driven grooves, and serve as excellent additions to the more experimental end of Henderson's discography.
