ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This recording is unique among Eric Alexander's large discography. It's very rare to hear Eric in a piano-less trio setting, and this album consists entirely of original music that stretches the boundaries of straight-ahead jazz by mixing in elements of the avant-garde throughout the program that features high-energy modal explorations, plaintive ballads, a Bartok-inspired composition, and even a number where Eric plays piano and saxophone without overdubs. The live setting guarantees a no-looking back approach to each track and a sense of urgency and communication. Listeners familiar with Alexander's work will enjoy this profoundly different project which is only available at CD Baby.
