Both of these come out on August 28.

Eric Alexander - Temple of Olympic Zeus (Highnote Records)

Chris Potter - Follow the Red Line: Live at the Village Vanguard (Sunnyside Records)

The Potter CD is the Live CD for his Underground band. I remember him mentioning that they just recorded it when I saw them in February.

So far I'm digging "Song for Anyone" a lot. "Red line" is very entertaining. Chris' playing can be like watching a gymnast and in this way I appreciate "Red Line", however, "Song" is certainly more introspective and artistic. To me, I think it's fresh air from most of what he's done since leaving Dave Douglas' band.

Yeah, a heard a track from Temple on the radio a few days ago. It was obvious the tenor player had studied Trane deeply, so I finally decided it must be Dave Liebman. I was suprised to discover it was Eric.

This is not to say he was trying to clone Coltrane.

Well, it didn't exactly sound like Liebman in terms of tone but I couldn't think of who else it could be.

The style seemed to be less in the George Coleman patterns mode than usual.

I don't remember the name of the cut.
