Joe Henderson: comenzó con un sonido en el tenor claramente deudor de John Coltrane, por su calidez y fraseo, aunque nunca dejó de explorar y enriquecer su estilo, de técnica intachable y lírico. Era también un improvisador audaz que, sin embargo, nunca pareció atrevido debido a que su sonido no tenía la agresividad del free jazz de la época.
Booker T. Washington White (November 12,1909 – February 26, 1977), better known as Bukka White, was a Delta blues guitarist and singer. White himself is remembered as a player of National steel guitars. He also played, but was less adept at, the piano. White typically played slide guitar, in an open tuning. He was one of the few, along with Skip James, to use a crossnote tuning in E minor, which he may have learned, as James did, from Henry Stuckey.
