Alexander McCabe "Quiz"
By Bruce Crowther

Alto saxophonist Alexander McCabe's new album is a vibrant mix of contemporary improved music and established values of jazz including melodic awareness and powerful swing. This set also displays Alexander's compositional skill as all but two tracks are his originals. There are two sessions hereon; at one recorded in 2009 the leader is joined by Uri Caine, Ugonna Okegwo and Greg Hutchinson, the other is from 2010 with Rudy Royston replacing Greg. Fine solos abound and the ensemble playing demonstrates a meeting of minds as all members of the quartet respond to the others with exciting and emotionally meaningful music.
