Alexander, Eric & Vincent Herring
High Note, 2012, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Take two of the best jazz sax players, add Mike LeDonne (p), John Webber (b) and Carl Allen (d) and you have a great recipe for cooking jazz. Make it a live set at New York’s Smoke and you can get some great food to help you digest the music. Where there’s Smoke, there’s fire, Friendly Fire in this case as Eric (tenor) and Vincent (alto) trade energetic bursts over eight selections. It lives up to the billing.
