Speaking eloquently to the benefits of keeping a working band together,
One For All continues to add some distinctive flair to
the mainstream tradition while building a singular book of originals and
uniquely arranged standards.
their fifth effort for Criss Cross,
finds John Coltrane firmly in mind with an uptempo romp through
Giant Steps, and a bossa-inflected Naima.
Rounding out this program of jazz standards are a few band originals and
an updated arrangement of the Bacharach trinket
In Between the Heartaches.
In the Band:
Eric Alexander on tenor sax,
Jim Rotondi on trumpet,
Steve Davis on trombone,
with pianist David Hazeltine,
bassist Peter Washington,
and drummer Joe Farnsworth.
