4.0 out of 5 stars Keeper of a great tradition December 15, 2011
Eric Alexander is a young master of the tenor saxophone, with a robust, dark sound that somehow makes me think of gourmet coffee. Although he's not a Texas tenor per se, his muscularity places him not far from that vein. He's an excellent balladeer, too, as the first cut from this CD, "You Don't Know What Love Is", shows. (He has a fine series of five albums titled "Gentle Ballads"). In this CD he takes several Coltrane tunes and makes them his own, with potent solos on the title tune, "Pursuance" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes". His bossa version of "Dear Lord" is quite attractive. The only misstep here is his take of Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue", too "light" for my taste; the dramatic flair of the tune is absent here. The gorgeous sound of his tenor sax is evident again on the modal "Wise One", a great album closer. Harold Mabern is another plus here; his solos on "Dear Lord" and "On a Misty Night" swing nicely.
Alexander has appeared on well over a hundred CDs, as leader, sideman or as a member of the collective One for All. Many of them, particularly his own recordings as a leader, range from strong to excellent. His development as a musician has been quite evident over the years. It's plain nonsense not to recognize his dedication to music. Not every musician has to be an innovator or a trailblazer; keeping alive the tradition of great tenor sax playing is just fine with me.
And if you think this CD sounds too loud, remember, there's always this little knob or switch named "volume".

1.0 out of 5 stars Cynical Artist; Horride Sound Quality February 24, 2010
Here is a jazz album mastered like Metallica's "Death Magnetic". Zero dynamic range, clipping, and digital distortion: in short a sonic mess. Artists, managers, and record executives do this so that the record will be louder than others if it is on rotation in an ipod or a disc carousel. Some believe that this will increase sales and make more money, which has never been proven to be the case. It is a cynical move, and very disrespectful to customers.

So the sound quality is unecessarily bad and the music will induce listening fatigue in some listeners. More info can be found if you google "loudness war", or check out the wikipedia entry.
