Alex Foster – Beginnings: Goodbye

alexfosterQuesto album è stato pubblicato nel 1991 sotto l’etichetta Big World Music, un disco fusion molto d’atmosfera, niente di particolare ma faceva parte dei dischi in cui Kenny Kirkland ha collaborato. Difficile da recuperare anche questo ma su amazon usato si trova a poco prezzo. Alex ha suonato con Jaco Pastorius, Gil Evans e con Mike Manieri negli Steps Ahead.
Il disco è apprezzabile, ci sono delle belle atmosfere, temi rilassati e melodici come anche i soli sono incentrati sulla melodia; non è un disco di virtuosismi ma si apprezza volentieri come sottofondo per qualche occasione.
