Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Trumpeter Ralph Alessi's ECM leader debut - 2013's Baida - was the album where "everything came together for him," according to Nate Chinen in a JazzTimes profile. "Without abandoning his yen for oppositional energies, it's a beautifully coherent statement, not just his most accomplished album but a contender for one of the year's best." Baida indeed went on to become the most lauded release of Alessi's career.
