Canyon Lady is a jazz album by Joe Henderson. It was recorded in 1973, but not released until 1975. It is an unusual album, one of Henderson's most experimental efforts. Far from being a standard jazz project, Canyon Lady incorporates very strong Latin American influences in the brass arrangements and rhythm section playing. Henderson's work is characterized by intense ostinato patterns. The first two pieces also feature creative electric piano solos by George Duke. The many musicians involved in the project include trombonist Julian Priester, bassist John Heard, drummer Eric Gravatt, a brass section and percussionists.
Recorded on October 1 (#1), 2 (#4) and October 3 (#2-3), 1973.
