The Kicker is the first album by jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson released on the Milestone label. It was recorded on August 10, 1967 with one track coming from a later session on September 27 and features performances by Henderson with Mike Lawrence, Grachan Moncur III, Kenny Barron, Ron Carter and Louis Hayes. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states that "Joe Henderson's first recording for Milestone was very much a continuation of the adventurous acoustic music he had recorded previously for Blue Note".[1]
