Alexander Mccabe – QUIZ
By Rotcod Zzaj

If it’s your jazz quotient you want tested, Alexander & his pals take it to the limit, no doubt. I first reviewed his great alto saxophone work way back in issue # 75, and I’m even more enthused about this splendid 7-track CD.. he’s joined by Uri Caine on piano, bassist Ugonna Ukegwo and drummers Greg Hutchinson & Rudy Royston. To get a true feel for how they perform together, watch this vid of “Lonnegan“… isn’t that some of the tightest quartet work you’ve heard this year? I just loved this one, through and through… super energy and high talent make it a winner from the opening note to the final chord. You can do an audio sample thing for one of my favorite tracks, “Good Morning, Heartache“, or listen to what I consider to be the best track on the album, “How Little We Know“, but no matter which tune you sample, you’ll certainly agree when I declare this to be MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (particularly for listeners who want great variety in the playing styles), with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.
