ERIC ALEXANDER / HAROLD MABURN QUARTET

ERIC ALEXANDER / HAROLD MABURN QUARTET

Brisk, buoyant and gimmick-free, this straightahead quartet date is as unpretentiously satisfying as that first swig of cold beer after a hard day’s work. In the liner notes to Mr. Lucky, pianist Harold Mabern proclaims Sammy Davis Jr. to be “the greatest performer ever,” and this beaming tribute brims with the innocent insouciance of that Rat Pack era of the 1950s and ’60s, when Davis palled around Vegas with Sinatra and Dean Martin and Mabern, now 76, was just entering adulthood.

I’ve often said that if I could have only one harmonic concept to work with for the next ten years I would have to pick the diminished scale. The diminished scale perfectly outlines the tritone relationship between two sets of chord progressions, which is one of the most important, if not THE most important, concept in modern jazz harmony.
