Eric Alexander Quartet featuring Eric Reed – Late Show
Jazz at Pyatt Hall
Boasting a warm, burnished tone, and keen harmonic imagination, tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander brings fresh ideas to the illustrious bop-based jazz tradition. With influences from bebop pioneers and post-bop innovators, his wide vocabulary touches on Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, the Sonnys (Stitt and Rollins), Charlie Parker, and Coltrane. Regularly working New York City’s most prestigious jazz clubs, he’s collaborated with the likes of Joe Lovano and Rufus Reid while appearing on more than 80 albums. His sharp quartet features Mike Gurrola bass, Kevin Kanner drums, and pianist Eric Reed, “a commanding presence on the jazz scene” (JazzTimes) who has worked with Dianne Reeves, Elvin Jones, and Wynton Marsalis.
