ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guitarist Alec Berlin's debut recording spans the groove spectrum from Blakey-esque swing to Rock, weaving high-intensity improvisation together with catchy melodies.

Featuring Blake Linderg on Drums, Stephan Crump on electric and acoustic bass, and Andrew Rathbun on tenor saxophone, "Crossing Paths" includes 8 original compositions and one standard.

"I wanted to put together a project that reflected all of my interests," says Berlin, "and this meant including some hard-hitting, rock pieces next to tunes that fit more neatly into the category of Jazz. Fortunately I was able to find players who were stylistically adept enough to handle the different vehicles I threw at them."

From the be-bop of "I Remember Who?" to the anthemic rock of "Decisions," "Crossing Paths" sizzles with energy from start to finish!

The perfect primer...
Berlin's well-worn style suggests a breadth of experience and musical wisdom that belies his young age and thus far generally catastrophe-free life. Crossing Paths is a joy for the jazz junkie, but also a great primer in the geography of the genre for anyone just beginning to explore jazz. For jazz and blues newbies, Berlin's Crossing Paths is the perfect primer.

Crossing Paths is a fixture in my CD player
Crossing Paths offers the listener an oportunity to get away for a while. As a fixture in my car CD player, I look forward to hearing this incredibly soothing CD. The music is refreshing and I look forward to another one soon.
