About

The six talented and successful musicians who comprise New York–based One for All have been praised by JazzTimes as an "extremely talented yet ego-less sextet [that] is hardly just about soloing; the group's amazing empathy and subtleness are its strongest trump cards." Collectively, Jim Rotondi, trumpet; Eric Alexander, tenor sax; Steve Davis, trombone; David Hazeltine, piano; John Webber, bass; and Joe Farnsworth, drums, have been sidemen to jazz greats Lionel Hampton, Art Blakey, Chick Corea, Ray Charles, and Freddie Hubbard, among others. Named for the Jazz Messengers' last record, the band has forged a powerful, yet sleek sound which has become synonymous with hard-swinging, straight-ahead modern jazz.
