June 25 "Grits & Gravy" Jazz
Mike LaDonne's Groover Quartet
Featuring Peter Bernstein & Eric Alexander and Joe Farnsworth
The uncommonly talented Mike LeDonne continues his transition from piano to Hammond B3, another superb album, suitably named I Love Music.Whenever LeDonne schedules a recording session he's sure to invite his friend and colleague, the stellar tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander. Alexander has been a member of LeDonne's "Groover Quartet" for more than fourteen years, as have guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Joe Farnsworth who comprise the group's exemplary rhythm section. Clearly, LeDonne and his comrades share some history, and LeDonne has served as a sideman on seven of Alexander's albums.
I LOVE MUSIC went to #2 on the jazz radio charts!
