Gran oportunidad para disfrutar de uno de los saxofonistas tenores mas destacados de la escena internacional.


Eric Alexander empezó como músico clásico, estudiando saxo alto en la Universidad de Indiana con Eugene Rousseau en 1986. Pronto cambió al jazz y al saxo tenor y entonces se trasladó a la William Paterson Universidad, donde estudia con Harold Mabern, Rufus Reid, Joe Lovano, Gary Smulyan, Norman Simmons, Steve Turre y otros.

Alexander consiguíó fama enseguida por acabar segundo (detrás de Joshua Redman y antes de Chris Potter) en la Thelonious Monk Competición de Saxo de Jazz Internacional de 1991. A partir de entonces empezó a grabar álbumes.

Influenciado fuertemente por John Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon y George Coleman, Alexander ha trabajado con muchos músicos de jazz notables, incluyendo el pianista de Chicago, Harold Mabern, el bajista Ron Carter, el batería Joseph Farnsworth y el guitarrista Pat Martino. También ha grabado y giró extensamente con el sexteto One for All.
