Over the decades the East Bay has nurtured many of funk’s definitive acts, and the powerful groove-centric tandem of Atta Kid draws directly on that proud lineage. Founded in 2012 by tenor and baritone saxophonist Daniel Casares and Hammond B-3 organist Max Cowan, Atta Kid has found a soul sweet spot by bridging the contagious lilt of New Orleans R&B with the greasy legacy of East Bay funk (which of course was profoundly influenced by Crescent City grooves).

Atta Kid made a deep impression at SFJAZZ in February 2017 with a Hotplate performance of trumpeter Lee Morgan’s iconic 1964 Blue Note album The Sidewinder for two sold-out shows in the Joe Henderson Lab. Atta Kid returns for a night focusing, appropriately, on the music of Joe Henderson, and in particular, re-imagined versions of classics from Henderson’s 1960s Blue Note years as well as gems from the string of funk-infused releases he recorded for the Milestone label in the early to mid-70s like In Pursuit of Blackness (1971), Black is the Color (1972), Canyon Lady (1973), Multiple (1973), Black Miracle (1975), and others.
