Electric!

Enlightened Planet is proud to be associated with Prart Music Group’s presentation of the Scott Henderson Trio on March 16th, 2011 at Xanadu Pub & Restaurant at the Furama Hotel in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and on March 18th, 2011 at Mello Yello Music & Bistro (formerly Overtone Music Cave) at RCA in Bangkok.

Scott Henderson

Scott Henderson claims to be a blues-rock guitar player. His early fascination with monster rock guitarists like Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, and blues greats such as Albert King and Buddy Guy, tempered by the influence of jazz music, led him finally to the style of music he is most famous for playing and composing. In his early professional years he played with Chick Corea’s Elektric Band, violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, and Weather Report’s Joe Zawinul, and then set out to create his own sound with bands like Tribal Tech and Vital Tech Tones.

Bangkok fans will no doubt remember Scott’s 2009 visit as a key member of the “Super Jazz Trio”, but this year marks the first time that Scott has been able to lead his own Trio to Thailand. Featuring Travis Carlton on bass, and Alan Hertz on drums, the Scott Henderson Trio has toured extensively in the U.S., Europe, South America, and Japan, playing music from Scott’s considerable catalog of blues and electric jazz fusion compositions.

This is also the first time that Scott will perform in Chiang Mai, affording the North’s electric guitar aficionados a great chance to see him up-close and personal.

Two great shows, and the start of a busy year for Enlightened Planet! See you there!
