Scott's Bio

Born in 1954, Scott Henderson grew up in an era where blues-rock was at it’s peak. His formative musical years took place in South Florida where he played the clubs with various bands, playing everything from Led Zeppelin to James Brown. Scott finished school at Florida Atlantic University, then moved to Los Angeles where he played and recorded with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band, violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, bassist Jeff Berlin and “Players”, and a four year stint with Weather Report’s Joe Zawinul. Henderson formed the band Tribal Tech in 1984 with bassist Gary Willis, and released ten critically acclaimed albums, with the newest “Tribal Tech X” released on the Tone Center label in March 2012. In 1991, he was named by Guitar World as the #1 Jazz Guitarist, and in January 1992, he was named #1 Jazz Guitarist in Guitar Player’s Annual Reader’s Poll. His first solo blues album “Dog Party”, a welcome retreat to his musical roots, won best blues album of 1994 in Guitar Player Magazine. Scott has also released two albums with “Vital Tech Tones”, a trio collaboration with bassist Victor Wooten and ex – Journey / Vital Information leader Steve Smith on drums. He’s recently been touring with the HBC Trio, featuring bassist Jeff Berlin and legendary drummer Dennis Chambers. They completed a world tour in November 2011 and have released their first album in October 2012. He is on the faculty at Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, and has written columns for Guitar Player, Guitar World and Guitar School Magazines. Alfred Publishing has released Henderson’s instructional DVD entitled “Scott Henderson – Jazz Rock Mastery”, which is a compilation of his two videos “Jazz Fusion Improvisation” and “Melodic Phrasing”. Alfred has also released his first transcription book “The Scott Henderson Guitar Book”. His other two transcription books, “The Best Of Scott Henderson” and “Scott Henderson – Blues Guitar Collection” are available through Hal Leonard Publishing, as well as his instructional book “Jazz Guitar Chord System”, a revolutionary way for students to study the pluralities of jazz harmony.
