Alex Lee Clark 8Tet featuring Ali McGuirk pay tribute to Abbey Lincoln – performing her classic “That’s Him”

“That’s Him!” is the second album by American jazz vocalist Abbey Lincoln featuring tracks recorded in 1957 for the Riverside label. She was accompanied by quite an all-star roster: tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins, trumpeter Kenny Dorham, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Max Roach. Even this early, she was already a major jazz singer with a style of her own.

The ALC 8tet plays original music ranging from straight ahead jazz to R & B. Alex has won multiple awards for his original compositions, most notably a Downbeat Magazine award for “The Big Lebowski Suite.” Alex is the co-leader of the Brian Thomas/Alex Lee-Clark Big Band, a group of the top players in Boston in an all funk big band, who’s music you can find at www.btalcbigband.com. You can also check out the ALC Funket, ALC 8tet, and the ALC Bluestet, all throughout Boston and New England. More info at www.alexleeclark.com!

Ali McGuirk is…

“A soul singer who evokes comparisons to Amy Winehouse but rocks even harder.”
– Steve Morse, The Boston Globe

“A vocal powerhouse and smart songwriter… also has some Motown and island rhythms to her sound. But her stuff digs down under Top 40 to find ragged rock grooves and jazz dub beats.” – Jed Gottlieb, The Boston Herald
