O’s Notes: Alto saxophonist, composer and producer Alexander McCabe puts together a fine set of eight, mostly original tunes for his latest, I’d Prefer. These are swinging, warm ballads featuring vocalist/sister Anne McCabe and the rich tenor sax of George Coleman. The rhythm section is Paul Odeh (p), Chris Haney (b) and Jeff Brown (d). We enjoyed “You Really Don’t Care”, the title track, “New York City” and “Out Front Blues”, a full-fledged jam!
