ALEXANDER McCABE/I’D Prefer: This was recorded in an afternoon at the end of August so it’s basically hot off the press but it has the feel of a swinging, 50s jazz vocal date, appropriately moody thrush included. Loaded with jazz pedigrees that you’ll have to Google on your own, this studio rat and his pals have delivered well over the years when you didn’t know their names—this is just icing on that cake. Think of a sophisticated New York sax date and this will come to mind once you get a taste. Just plain smoking.
