Tracey: Hi Bo, may I first of all thank you for giving Just Soul this interview. It is a pleasure for me to interview someone with such a smooth, romantic, soulful voice - umn! You were born in Washington and raised in LA. Where are you currently living?
Barrington Scott Henderson: Las Vegas, NV.

Tracey: On your website it says the words ‘Keep learning, loving and listening’. I’d like the readers of Just Soul to learn a little bit about Barrington Scott Henderson. Please tell me a little about yourself. Are you married? Do you have a family of your own? Can you tell me what you are like as a person?
Barrington Scott Henderson: No, I am not married - happily divorced - and yes I do have a family. I am complex, but as down to earth as they come.


Tracey: You have a very British sounding name. Where does your name originate?
Barrington Scott Henderson: My dear grandmother (bless her heart) gave me my first name and my mother gave me my middle name.

Tracey: Are you feeling loved in 2006 or in need of a bit of love?
Barrington Scott Henderson: Yes, I’m in need of love - universally speaking.

Tracey: You have recorded with people like Roy Ayers, Spyro Gyra & Denise Williams. Any plans in the near future to record with anyone else?
Barrington Scott Henderson: I’m open for it - anything is possible.

Tracey: Tell me a little bit about your solo album "Best Kept Secret"? Do you have a favourite track from the album?

Barrington Scott Henderson: I make myself laugh.

Tracey: Paella or Pizza? Red Wine or Beer?
