- Artist: Alex Zepeda

'From the first notes of 'In a Sentimental Mood' it is clear that Fredric Zimmerman and Alex Zepeda have tapped into that way of connecting with life and are full-fledged members of that other dimension. The music feels right and you know that these two musicians are concentrating on creating a world of shifting emotions, layered one on top of another, the final result being a deep and rich pillow of beauty for you to rest your inner self upon.' -Chuck Sher President of Sher Music Co. If you like this music look for Zimmerman's debut trio recording: Trio Music Volume I: Standards And His Quartet 96: (original compositions) Zimmerman and Zepeda grew up in Laguna Beach California. At the time of this recording in 1995, they had been playing off and on for years. I am sad to say that as of August 11, 2001, Alex Zepeda is no longer with us. He was a truely amazing saxophonist, overall musician and spirit. Duets Volume I and II is a good example of his work on both alto and soprano saxophones. He is also featured on the Quartet 96 album (which is the most recent release by Fredric Zimmerman). All of these albums should be available on CDBaby.com in the near future.
