Alexander Zonjic – Doin’ the D
Flutist Alexander Zonjic is a legend in Detroit (the “D”), where he’s been a mainstay in the jazz scene for over . And he pays homage to his adopted hometown in the title of his newest CD on the Heads Up International label. Working with a fine cast of players including Kenny G, Rick Braun, Bob James, Jeff Lorber and Chieli Minucci, he serves up a mostly upbeat set, ranging from the bouncy Summer cut, “Top Down,” to the guitar-laden “Passion Island.” But he modifies the tempo nicely on the pretty “Little Sunflower” and on the cut most likely to appeal to soul music fans, a cover of the Guess Who’s “Undun” with Maysa handling vocals. Doin’ the D comes at just the right time for Summer cruising down Woodward Avenue and is a welcome addition to Zonjic’s formidable discography. Recommended.
