Born in New York City on April 16, 1910, Henderson began playing piano at the age of nine, and some years later studied book-keeping. He recorded a pair of sides with Vanguard Records in the late 1950s.
Henderson was briefly engaged to the teenaged Billie Holiday in 1934, whom he met and accompanied at the nightclub Pod's and Jerry's, but on December 1 that year the New York Age announced that he was no longer engaged to her. He spent much of his career playing solo. He died in Albany, New York, in 1969.
