Alexander McCabe is a saxophonist and composer. Originally from Boston, he’s made his life in New York City since the 1980s. He’s a regular on the Jazz scene, but he has also played in the Ska band Mephiskapheles, toured with Ray Charles, and composes for film and television.
The new record I’d Prefer is a wonderful collection of original songs that feel familiar and comfortable. The songs are fun, the musicianship is excellent; Alexander on alto saxophone, George Coleman on tenor saxophone, Paul Odeh on piano, Chris Haney playing bass and Jeff Brown on drums. The singer Anne McCabe, Alexander’s sister, takes us into the timelessness of a Jazzy Swinging vibe.
Baruch and Alexander talk about the music, the inspiration, and life during Covid.
