Dave O'Higgins (tenor) Eric Alexander (tenor) Tom Cawley (piano) Arnie Somogyi (bass) Kristian Leth (drums)
Renowned British tenor star Dave O'Higgins is joined by the prolific US tenor man Eric Alexander. After finishing as runner-up to Joshua Redman in the 1991 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition, Eric has appeared on over 60 albums as a leader or sideman. His finely burnished tone is reminiscent of George Coleman or Sonny Stitt, and this two-tenor burn-up harks back to the great tenor battles of Stitt and Gene Ammons, or Johnny Griffin and Lockjaw Davis. Backed by pianist Tom Cawley, the formidable Arnie Somogyi on bass and Danish drummer Kristian Leth this quintet promises an evening of hot swinging bop.
