Joe Henderson had fully hit his stride by the time he made Inner 'Urge', his 4th album for Blue Note, recorded in November 1964. After a series of quintet dates, this was the tenor saxophonist's first quartet album, and it featured an extraordinary line-up with McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The foursome deliver a diverse set consisting of three Henderson originals including the remarkable title track and the Monkish 'Isotope,' as well as a gorgeous ballad performance of Duke Pearson's 'You Know I Care' and a nimble swing through Cole Porter's 'Night and Day.'
