Monday YouTube Fix: Joe Alessi

Andrew Hitz

What is there left to say about Joe Alessi? He is simply put one of the absolute finest musicians I've ever had the privilege of performing with in my career.  This is a very moving performance from the memorial service of the late great Fred Mills.  So musical and so powerful. The thing that gets me most about Joe's playing is the ends of his notes.  We all do a great job, especially brass players, of noticing when the beginning of a note isn't how we want it.  In my opinion, Joe ends notes as well as anyone in the business.

Enjoy and keep the family of Fred Mills in your thoughts this holiday season.
