专辑介绍:

年轻的萨克斯大师-----艾瑞克.亚历山德

平心而论,爵士乐百年来优秀的越手多如牛毛,早期经典大师到潜力十足的后起之秀均多,在忠实的乐迷穷其一生之力都无法悉数尽收耳底。尤其是针对新一辈的乐手,乐迷的选择眼光显得特别要紧,年轻乐手的「发展性」是最值得投资前观察的部分。於是,Eric Alexander是值得推荐的年轻萨克斯风手。一九九一年参加了「孟克爵士萨克斯风大赛」,夺得第二名。他年年在进步,他有一颗认真学习的心,现在的他已然列入当代萨克斯风大师之林。

Nightlife in Tokyo是Eric Alexander的最新专辑,请来了钢琴手Harold Mabern与贝斯手Ron Carter等老将助阵。有了「老仙角」的加持,Alexander演奏起来没有后顾之忧,也因此呈现出一种极有创意的,颠覆的当代硬式咆勃作品。从Alexander的演奏中可听出受传统大师如Joe Henderson、Wayne Shorter等人的影响,同时他也逐渐确立了「自己的风格」;而听完了这张作品后,笔者不禁开始期待他的下一步动作了。

【内容简介】

☆年年都在进步的年轻萨克斯风手

  Eric Alexander是值得推荐的年轻萨克斯风手。1991年参加了「孟克爵士萨克斯风大赛」,夺得第二名。他年年在进步,他有一颗认真学习的心,现在的他已然列入当代萨克斯风大师之林。《Nightlife in Tokyo》是Eric Alexander的最新专辑,请来了钢琴手Harold Mabern与贝斯手Ron Carter等老将助阵。有了「老仙角」的加持,Alexander演奏起来没有后顾之忧,也因此呈现出一种极有创意的,颠覆的当代硬式咆勃作品。从Alexander的演奏中可听出受传统大师如Joe Henderson、Wayne Shorter等人的影响,同时他也逐渐确立了「自己的风格」;而听完了这张作品后,笔者不禁开始期待他的下一步动作了。

今年三十几岁的艾瑞克.亚历山大(Eric Alexander)原本在印第安那大学受古典萨克斯风的训练,但当他发现爵士乐这个美妙的领域之后,他决定要投入爵士乐演奏,於是他转学到纽泽西的威廉彼得生学院学习爵士乐,期间除了与查尔斯.亚尔兰(Charles Earland)巡迴演出之外,并且在当地的酒吧参与演出。
  一九九一年,他参加该年度的孟克大赏萨克斯风组的比赛,获得第二名。当年的第一名--名门之后约书亚.瑞德曼(Joshua Redman)--早已是爵士乐界广受注目的年轻狮子,反而亚历山大虽然有在乐界走动,在这十年间也掛头牌录制了十张以上的唱片,但在乐界的名气却远不及瑞德曼那么醒目。

AllMusic Review by Jim Todd [-]
First off, while its title might suggest otherwise, this is not a live album; the CD takes its name from a piece by Eric Alexander's pianist, the veteran Harold Mabern. This is a fitting gesture, as Mabern is a key to this session's many pleasures and has been a mentor to Alexander during the saxophonist's steady rise to the top ranks of his art form. For this December 2002 session, Alexander offers a sustained program of fresh, creative, and advanced hard bop that unequivocally establishes him as a player who is not only fully aware of the tradition, but who is now among those most eminently qualified to develop it further. The consistent high quality of the outing is, naturally, a measure of the cohesion and communication within Alexander's crack quartet. Mabern fuels the performances with a driving, spacious melodicism. Drummer Joe Farnsworth, another Alexander regular, combines crisp precision and flawless creative instincts behind the drum kit. To the session's credit, bassist Ron Carter is not on hand as a special guest, but as a completely integrated member of the rhythm team. He combines especially well with Farnsworth, with playing that is agile, powerful, rich, and vivid. Alexander is a source of endlessly imaginative choruses. Listeners will detect some of George Coleman's incendiary sleight of hand, Wayne Shorter's sidelong phrasing, and Joe Henderson's trenchant, amiable authority in the leader's highly evolved command of the horn. They will also hear Alexander's talent for writing; the five memorable hard bop originals he presents here are destined to become modern classics.

Eric Alexander: Nightlife In Tokyo

"Nemesis," the opening track of Eric Alexander’s latest release, Nightlife in Tokyo, encapsulates within its twisting motif and exotic garb both the positive and negative qualities of the album. The motif is compelling, but only because it is so reminiscent of Coltrane tracks like “India” and “Naima.” The tune provides a utilitarian launching pad for Alexander’s skillful, well-developed, well-blown tenor improvisations, but fails to provide enough fuel to ignite truly burning runs. That said, it is certainly a well-crafted piece, just like all the material on the album. Even so the overall result feels somehow unsatisfying, and the real problem is that it’s frustratingly difficult to figure out why.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Alexander knows his saxophone, and knows almost everything there is to know about the players that have preceded him on the instrument. In cases like these, however, it remains questionable how essentially good this exhaustive familiarity actually is. Alexander’s compositions display versatility and a great sense of balance. His tone is rich and cultured. He knows when to bend and when to remain firm, his phrasing is always right on the money, and he interacts well with his rhythm section. As is often the case on albums like this, it’s just this interaction which provides the most compelling listening material. Ron Carter’s bass work stands out, particularly on the relatively driving title track, “Nightlife in Tokyo."

In fact, there is no point where the instrumentation, phrasing, tone quality, or note choice stand out as particularly unappealing. In fact, that may be the problem. There is a deliberateness to Alexander’s playing which makes his smooth tone feel too controlled and his Coltrane-esque squiggles and tremolos too calculated. It often feels like there are two Alexanders playing simultaneously: the first initiating the impulse, and the second checking that impulse against an enormous file of technique, phrases, and historic data. This becomes increasingly notable on slower ballads like “I’ll Be Around” than on the edgier, harder tunes such as the already mentioned “Nemisis” and the album’s stand-out piece, “Cold Smoke.”

Overall, this is a solid, straight ahead album that once again reveals Alexander’s tone control and dexterity. There are individual moments and tunes that will without doubt capture the attention of individual listeners. Each listener will most likely identify a favorite tune or two, just as this reviewer has. However, over time the individual tracks tend to bleed together, just as much of today’s jazz output does as a whole, to create a rather homogeneous landscape.
