"The first thing that hits you here, aside from the fleet-fingered playing, is the stylistic variety. In the song titles and descriptive notes, Henderson includes shout-outs to Brazilian guitarists Caetano Veloso, Yamandœ Costa, and (B.C. transplant) Celso Machado, and love of the delicately rhythmic chorinho form is apparent throughout. But he also taps into Appalachian, flamenco, and other folk influences, especially in songs that reference family members, such as the gentle 'Put Your Hands Together for My Brother', dedicated to sibling Bill Henderson, in whose venerable Chilliwack outfit Ed has served time.

Perhaps the self-produced album's most satisfying cut, and its longest at almost five minutes (several gems are under two), is called 'Family Dynamics'. It extends the filial bond to Lenny Breau, just as the following 'Tone Poem' and closing 'Way Home' echo Pat Metheny's propulsive minimalism. But Henderson never settles for quoting his heroes, instead incorporating their best features into a sound that's totally his own. Furthermore, he often switches between nylon-stringed classical guitar and a flat-topped steel stringer, but his touch is so sensitive and secure, and the recording is so richly present, Intimate is of one sinuous, flowing piece."
--Ken Eisner, The Georgia Straight

Collective Note: Ed Henderson is a brilliant guitarist with diverse musical talents and accomplishments. He's as comfortable arranging for a choir or working with an orchestra as he is playing in his brother's rock band, Chilliwack. Ed has won many awards as a musician, composer, and arranger for theater, film and television, including a Juno for El Camino Real, with Ancient Cultures. Ed's original solo cd's are rich, creative, and inspiring, rolling through moods and genres with ease. His sounds will change your environment in a most beautiful way.
