Criss Cross Jazz 1256 CD

One For All


Available: September 17, 2004

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. Blueslike, 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.
