Tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, known for his incredible agility with both hard bop and post-bop jazz, will perform with his all-star quartet, featuring pianist Harold Mabern, bassist John Webber and drummer Joe Farnsworth.
“Eric Alexander is a tenor saxophonist who can play at all tempos, in all registers, and never without swinging mightily,” says Hot House Jazz. “He is an imposing improvisor,” says London Jazz News. “Hearing Alexander play unfettered and at length is one of the greatest treats in jazz,” and his collaboration with Mabern, Webber and Farnsworth “is a formula for excellence, if ever there was one.”
A sumptuous buffet brunch, including an omelet station and a medley of desserts, is served at NICO Kitchen + Bar at 11am and 1pm, with performances scheduled at 11:30am and 1:30pm.
