Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: March 19, 1926

Bill is a virtuoso performer whose heart is a vault filled with a wide range of music expressions waiting for the song of release. He has already put his personal stamp on many wonderful works of great composers and lyricists of popular music. Those who have heard him on record or in concert can attest to his marvelous genius.

Bill Henderson has spent many years cultivating and honing two distinctly separate yet complementary careers in music and film. His stage credits include film and television projects such as City Slickers, Maverick, Lethal Weapon 4, ER, Cold Case, Hill Street Blues, and The Twilight Zone.

In 1959, his recording of Horace Silver's Senor Blues, announced his arrival as a jazz vocalist and since then he has worked with the greatest jazz masters such as Oscar Peterson, Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis and many others.
