A major tenor-saxophonist since the 1990s, Eric Alexander was usually featured before the world shut down in a quartet (he worked for years with the late pianist Harold Mabern) or larger groups.

While one can trace his style at times to John Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon and other jazz greats, Alexander has his own musical personality in jazz’s modern mainstream.

On this LiveStream from May 25, 2020, Alexander performs a ballad on piano and then, after the camera is straightened out, performs a set of unaccompanied tenor solos including “Misty,” “On A Clear Day,” a lowdown blues that he punctuates with some piano chords, “Four,” “Lover,” “Giant Steps,” and other pieces, often explaining what he is doing, giving listeners a bit of a lesson.
