A three–time GRAMMY Award nominee before his fifteenth birthday (coming up June 25), Joey Alexander is the most significant rising star in jazz since the emergence of Esperanza Spalding. Eclipse, his third Motema Music studio effort and fourth release as a leader, is his most personal and accom-plished statement to date. Recorded over a three–day period beginning on the day of the 2017 solar eclipse, Eclipse features the stellar rhythm section of bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland, and guest performances on three tracks by saxophonist Joshua Redman. The repertoire includes jazz clas-sics penned by John Coltrane and Bill Evans, the Lennon/McCartney standard “Blackbird,” and a reverent gospel reimagining of the 1875 hymn “Draw Me Nearer.” Most importantly, Eclipse features six Joey Alexander originals including the free–flowing ten–minute title track, recorded in a continuous first take. “It was a little intimidating to play those first notes, knowing it would be the only take,” Alexander told Billboard. “I was relieved after listening back in the control room. It’s what I really love, composing freely in the moment, listening and reacting to the band, creating something new and moving to another place.”
