Four is an album by jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson, recorded on April 21, 1968, but only released in 1994 by the Verve label. It features a live performance by Henderson with pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states: "Henderson really pushes the rhythm section (which, although they had not played with the tenor previously, had been together for a decade) and he is certainly inspired by their presence. This is a frequently exciting performance by some of the modern bop greats of the era".[2] Further selections from this concert were released as Straight, No Chaser.
