Description:Winner of Swing Journal 2007 Jazz Disc Silver Award and Best Engineering Award!!

Eric Alexander's latest release from Venus Records is a special one, indeed. The people at Venus asked the readers of the premier Japanese jazz magazine Swing Journal what they would like to hear Alexander play. From a long list of requested songs, Alexander and producer selected the tunes included in this CD.

Many of the seletions here are famous jazz tunes strongly associated with tenor sax giants of the past, from "Sugar" written by Stanley Turrentine and "Airegin" by Sonny Rollins, and "My Favorite Things" and "Lazy Bird" immortalized by John Coltrane.

Alexander tackles this daunting task with confidence of a musician at his prime. While paying respects to the great tenor saxophonists, he makes every performance uniquely his own with his brawny, warm tone and modern phrasings. Alexander and his frequent bandmates flew to Tokyo for this special occasion, and recorded the entire CD in just one day!

Once again, Alexander proved that he is one of the best tenormen today. And this CD is another fine offering to the world from the Japanese jazz industry, made possible by an excellent, independent jazz label, an influential magazine and astute fans. Highly recommended!

Produced by Tetsuo Hara. Recorded at B.S.T. Studio in Tokyo on September 5, 2007. Engineered by Shuji Kitamura. Mixed and mastered by Venus Hyper Magnum Sound: Shuji Kitamura and Tetsuo Hara. Swing Journal Gold Disc. Gatefold paper sleeve edition.
