Recorded in April 1964, In ‘n Out falls square in the middle of the formidable run of five classic Blue Note albums that launched tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson’s legendary career. The lineup featured the transcendent frontline of Henderson and trumpeter Kenny Dorham along with a powerful rhythm section with pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Elvin Jones. The music charted expansive postbop territory on three Henderson’s originals (“In ‘n Out” “Punjab” “Serenity”) and two by Dorham (“Short Story” “Brown’s Town”). The brilliant album cover design by Reid Miles is a quintessential example of the bold typography that made his style so influential.
