When veteran tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander appears Saturday night at Romolo Chocolates, he’ll be leading a group that represents the organ-tenor and organ-guitar combos of the 1950s and beyond that added soul jazz to the jazz style book.

Guitarist Paul Bollenback earned his reputation with 16 years and 14 albums with Joey DeFrancesco, arguably the best organist since the great Jimmy Smith. Organ will be in the experienced hands (and feet – for the foot pedals) of Greg Hatza. Hatza has led The Greg Hatza ORGANization for 20 years. Drummer Robert Shahid, who’s played with scads of well-known folks, rounds out the group. – Bob Protzman
