Recorded on January 27, 1966, at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

Mode for Joe is the fifth studio album by Joe Henderson and his last Blue Note album.

Of his Blue Note albums, Mode For Joe is unique in that it is the only one to feature Henderson with a group larger than a quintet. When one considers that its septet also includes Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller and Bobby Hutcherson, that the repertoire includes the original versions of “A Shade Of Jade," "Mode For Joe" and "Free Wheelin'" and that this set has never had such brilliant sound, it is obvious that this is an album that is a must for all serious music collections.

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
