The Eric Alexander Jazztet
Friday, November 16, 2018
Internationally renowned, tenor sax giant ERIC ALEXANDER headlines our series on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16th. Philly organ favorite LUCAS BROWN, and noted drummer COLBY INZER complete his ensemble.
Mr. Alexander began his professional career as one of jazz's highly touted "Young Lions" three decades ago. He's since risen to elite status in jazz circles, earning that honor as an ensemble leader, and by performing and recording with numerous jazz legends. Pat Martino, George Coleman, Charles Earland, Harold Mabern, Jimmy Cobb, Cecil Payne, John Hicks, and Joe Lovano are but a few of them.
Alexander's distinguished career also contains numerous awards for his playing, including those won from the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, and from Downbeat Magazine and online magazine, JazzWeek.
With a worldwide, high-demand performance schedule at top clubs, colleges and festivals, Alexander also continues to record frequently. His huge discography includes countless leader CDs, many more as co-founder and co-leader of the sextet "One for All," and others as a sought after sideman.
