Canyon Lady is a jazz album by Joe Henderson. It was recorded in 1973, but released only in 1975. It is a peculiar album, one of Henderson's most experimental efforts. Far from being a classic jazz project, Canyon Lady incorporates very strong Latin American influences in the brass section, percussion and rhythm. Henderson's playing is at times characterized by ostinato sequences. The first two pieces also feature unusual electric piano solos and patterns. Many musicians are involved in the project–"Tres Palabras" is performed by a 13-elements ensemble.
