5.0 out of 5 stars
Great Jazz, great music, Nov. 5 2010
This group of musicians record and perform under the name of 'One For All' as well as under their own names and in different groupings but in all cases the music is excellent. Whether you are a fan of Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, David Hazeltine or any of the others in the group you will enjoy all the releases by this group.
The recording was done in Dec 2003 with the CD released the following year. The two Coltrane tunes on the cd are excellent and are given a distictly 'One for All' three horn treatment that is very enjoyable. The title track, written by David Hazeltine is very memorable and rollicks along with energy that tells you it is one of the bands favourite tunes to play on live gigs. The Alexander original 'Yasashiku' is a 'gentle' ballad that brings his lush tenor sound to the foreground.
All in all, One for All is a group that has never dissapointed me with their music and I will purchase anything they put out. If this disc is your introduction to the group, I'm sure you will enjoy 'Blueslike'.
