Bill Henderson: Please Send Me Someone To Love

"Please Send Me Someone To Love" was one of Bill Henderson's last recordings for Vee-Jay. Although recorded in a studio, it feels like a reflective after-hours session from a deserted nightclub. Henderson's voice has a scratchiness that lends vulnerability to the song, and his unique terminal vibrato sounds almost like a cry. His spoken "Please" at the end of the first chorus could break your heart. The slightly off-mike contributions of tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris add to the late-night mood.
