CD/DVD: Eric Alexander

Eric Alexander, Prime Time (High Note). In top form and with a responsive audience, the muscular tenor saxophonist and his quartet are captured in concert on CD and, in different performances, on an accompanying DVD. Like the music, the video and audio are clear and straightforward. Pianist David Hazeltine, bassist John Webber and drummer Joe Farnsworth are solid in support and solo. Alexander’s and Hazeltine’s heartfelt duo version of Bernstein’s “Some Other Time” is a welcome departure from the intensity of a menu of challenging original tunes.
