Eric Alexander - “His blowing is extraordinarily articulate and ecstatic, his tone bright and muscular, leadership and inspiration flowing nonstop. Alexander has released more than 30 albums in two decades, and this is one of the most vital.” [Chicago Fire] JazzTimes
”Whatever the mood or tempo, spellbinding notes and phrases flow from Alexander's horn as smoothly as honey from a jar…. Alexander burns when he has to, plays the blues with unfeigned warmth and perception, and generally shows why his well-earned reputation as a musician who always delivers the goods is by no means misapplied.” AllAboutJazz.com
John Webber is one of the premiere bass players in the jazz world. He can be seen at New York City's finest jazz clubs, and he tours all over the United States and the world. John studied music at Northern Illinois University and Roosevelt University. In 1987 John moved to New York City and began performing with Bill Hardman and Junior Cook. His career has included long-running collaborations with Johnny Griffin, George Coleman, Eric Alexander, and Jimmy Cobbs Mob as well as freelance work with Etta Jones, Horace Silver, Ryan Kisor, Lou Donaldson, Milt Jackson, Benny Green, Barry Harris, Brad Mehldau,and many, many others.
