PAPATAMAMUS ISSUE #105
by Robert Rusch
ALEXANDER McCABE [ss/as] comes on strong with BODY AND SOUL [Wamco Records 606638 70144]. Recorded in 2021 with Paul Odeh [p], Ugonna Okegwo [b] and Craig Wuepper [drm], the CD features four originals plus the title track and other jazz classics. Take note of McCabe’s take on John Coltrane’s “Countdown.” A challenging tune for any saxophonist, McCabe passes the test with flying colors.
