Scott Henderson (born August 26, 1954) is a fusion and blues guitarist best known for his work with the band Tribal Tech.
Born in West Palm Beach, Florida, Henderson began playing guitar at an early age. His formative musical years were spent listening to rock, blues, funk and soul, while his interest in jazz developed later on, thanks to the music of John Coltrane, Miles Davis and others. He still professes to being a blues player at heart.
After graduating from Florida Atlantic University, Henderson moved to Los Angeles and began his career in earnest, playing and recording with violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, bassist Jeff Berlin and "Players", and Weather Report's Joe Zawinul. Henderson first began receiving serious attention as the original guitarist for the Chick Corea Elektric Band. But he stayed only six months with Corea and left after some major clash, with amongst other reasons, Chick's scientological beliefs.
