Criss Cross Jazz 1258 CD

Reeds and Deeds

Wailin'

Available: February 15, 2005

Presided by tenor saxophonists Eric Alexander and Grant Stewart, the all-star quintet Reeds and Deeds boasts longtime Criss Cross artists, pianist David Hazeltine, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Kenny Washington.

Featuring arrangements that emphasize the distinctive blend of the two horns as well as solos by all hands, the band embraces a varied program of Alexander and Stewart originals, choice items from the American Popular Songbook, and a vintage Dizzy Gillespie tune.

With Wailin', Reeds and Deeds offers a great, burning hardbop session.
