Editorial Reviews

Being virtually unknown is no reliable indication of a jazz musician s quality; the music has more than its share of highly competent musicians whose careers were passed in almost total obscurity. A case in point is Joe Alexander, a hard-driving young tenor from Birmingham, Alabama, who made his leader debut on this, his only album. Sharing the front line with him was the almost equally unsung Joe Hunt, the trumpet and flugelhorn player of the accomplished Ray Charles band. Obscure though the hornmen were, they were good enough to call on a rhythm section of high profile players in pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Albert Heath. With such support, and with Timmons sharing solo honors, Alexander and Hunt establish their credentials as brisk, long-limbed swingers on Brown s Town, Weird Beard (both arranged by Hunt), Terri s Blues, and Tom McIntosh s earthy Blue Jubilee. Alexander in particular digs much emotion out of a ballad treatment of the standard I ll Close My Eyes, proving that good jazz is where you find it.

This date is especially good date in that it showcases a pretty much unknown musician with great talent. For those that are unfamiliar with Joe Alexander, you,re in for an enjoyable experience.

If this is the same Joe Alexader who took a couple of solos on Tadd Dameron's FONTAINEBLEAU album, it sure does not sound like him . The tenor sax sound here is heavier and he seems to lack the technical facility displayed on the track Delirium from that album. But if you are a Riverside rarities collector or like Clark Terry licks, which the trumpeter here occasionally plays, you might enjoy it.
