Biography

William Randall “Bill” Henderson (Chicago, Illinois, March 19, 1926) is an American jazz vocalist and actor.

Henderson began his professional music career in 1952, performing in Chicago with Ramsey Lewis, and began recording as a leader after a move to New York in 1958. He has since recorded and performed with artists such as Horace Silver (Senor Blues), Oscar Peterson, Jimmy Smith, Count Basie, Yusef Lateef, Booker Little, and Eddie Harris. Henderson also recorded his own vocal tracks as “King Blues” in the 1983 comedy Get Crazy. In 1999, Henderson made a guest vocal appearance on Charlie Haden’s album The Art of the Song. Still in prime form, Henderson continues to sing regularly in and around the Los Angeles area.
Henderson’s acting credits have been numerous. Beginning in the mid-1970s, and continuing to this day, he has frequently appeared on television in supporting, usually one-time roles. His film roles have followed a similar trend — minor and supporting roles.

    Met him at Barnes and Noble and talked at length about jazz. What a fascinating guy.
