Eric Alexander is a very consistent tenor saxophonist, one who swings hard even if the chord changes are a bit complex. His tone is appealing and, like one of his influences, Dexter Gordon, he rarely seems to run out of ideas. For this sextet date with trumpeter John Swana, guitarist Peter Bernstein, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Carl Allen, Alexander contributed three very different originals and interprets a trio of standards plus Ahmad Jamal's "Night Mist Blues" and Cecil McBee's "Song of Her." Whether it be romps or sensitive ballads, Eric Alexander is in excellent form throughout this rewarding disc.
