Eric Alexander makes his first foray on HighNote Records into the hallowed halls of the ‘ballad record’, and joins the ranks of such tenor balladeers as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Houston Person, Hank Mobley and countless others. But this is not your mother’s ballad record. Eric has selected an interesting program of music that will interest and please even the most seasoned collectors. From “Dinner for One Please, James” to Trane’s “Central Park West,” Eric displays a thoughtful sensitivity that is all the more effective for being so surprising.
