Alex Clough, 2018, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Pianist, educator and composer Alex Clough was born in Brooklyn but now resides in Jersey City. He spends most of his time in the middle – in New York’s jazz scene. He’s polished his craft over the years and now presents his leadership debut“Near, Far, Beyond“a snapshot of his experiences in and outside of the Big Apple. Clough gets support from David Smith (t), Steve Kortyka (t-sax), John Tate (b) and Jay Sawyer (d). There are eight original tunes that have a gentle, retro, swing. Our favorites are the mellow “Free, Free, Free” and jovial “Marseilles”.
