Alan Barnes: Here Comes Trouble…

COMPOSERS: Alan Barnes
WORKS: Here Comes Trouble…
CATALOGUE NO: FJCD 110 (distr. New Note)
One of the UK’s most skilful saxophonists, Barnes combines a lively modern approach with deep respect for tradition, and this album showcases both his agile, bluesy alto and his warm, considered baritone in a judicious mix of straight-swinging originals and material by the likes of Charlie Parker. Recommended. CP
