"Ewing jazz artist carries on a family legacy of music with his first album"

Otey’s first solo album, a vocal jazz collection (yes, Otey also sings) titled Love Matters Now, is a bit of a tightrope walker between the commercial and the artistic. Critically, it’s already making waves. In August, the album won Best Jazz Album, and the song “Richie’s Bop” (yes, Richie Cole) won Best Jazz Song at the Akademia Music Awards. That song, along with “Happy Days” and “After All This Time,” were final-round contenders in the 2017 U.K. Song-Writers Contest. - / Scott Morgan

"Alex Otey - Love Matters Now"

Alex Otey's work through the years is well thought out and well played as well. He is able to build up from the ground, to create a style that is in similar, fashion of the past into the modern age of today. "Love Matters Now", is that type of release that keeps the music jumping and bumping. - NataliezWorld /NataliePerez

"Alex Otey Trio – ‘Love Matters Now’"

Alex has found a way to tap into the side of jazz that the everyday people, who may not know a lot about jazz, will love with songs that are fun, warm, entertaining and inviting; at the same time the musicianship is above par and will engage those who love smooth jazz with vocals. - Indie Spoonful / Bryon William
