Joe Henderson (feat. Alice Coltrane) – Water

This track is taken from the ‘Elements’ album, recorded in 1973. The album features Alice Coltrane alongside Henderson, and is a shining example of the electric jazz fusion that was prevalent at the time. The term fusion soon became a dirty word, and with good reason (Weather Report anyone?). However, during the fertile period between the mid 60s and mid 70s, astoundingly good music was being made and released under the ‘fusion’ banner. This track lives up to its name and the fluid saxophone melding into the other instruments really does sound like auditory liquid. Stunning!
