O’s Notes: Eric Alexander leads a quartet with pianist Harold Mabern, bassist John Webber and Joe Farnsworth on drums. This is a polished team that works very well together. Alexander’s tenor sax is deep warm and rich, most appealing on this all ballads recording. Even when he blazes through a riff, the notes are round, clear and rich. The program is more off-the-beaten-path covers, making it somewhat ordinary yet still enjoyable.
