Artist Alex Candelaria
Title Yeahway!
Label Evander Music - Em 028 -

The Alex Candelaria CD "Yeahway" is his first jazz quartet date as a leader. The music reflects his uniquely lyrical and improvisational take on "jazz composers" standards of the 60's and 70's such as Simone (Frank Foster), Opus 4(Mingus) and Jeannine (Duke Pearson). In addition there are two originals that display both a lyrical focus (Protophasia) and a more intense, freer harmonic exploration (Yeahway). On this release Alex enjoys the tremendous support of Leonard Thompson (piano), Jon Evans (bass) and Bryan Bowman (drums).
