Alexander McCabe/Paul Odeh: This Is Not a Pipe

Alexander's work has been reviewed here since (at least) issue 75, so I'm quite familiar with his excellent sax playing ("not a pipe", indeed; but a contact buzz is guaranteed). Paul's piano joins Alexander on this wonderful and comfortable set, and tunes like the opener, "Miss Maritza", will reveal the total talent involved in this fine CD! The "jump" on "Friday's Good" will have you toe-tappin' right along with these two brilliant players... they are "right on" the rhythm together on this piece in a near-boogie mode... I just loved the piano on this one, and Alexander keeps the beat going for the entire 4:20! It was the 8:02 closer, "Minority", that snagged my vote as favorite of the eight tunes on the CD... if freedom in jazz is your preferred listening mode, you'll completely agree when I declare this CD to be MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED; "EQ" (energy quotient) rating is 4.99.
