each and every

each and every
   is at best a trite way of providing emphasis, at worst redundant, and generally both, as here: "Each and every one of the twelve songs on Marshall Crenshaw s debut album is breezy and refreshing" (Washington Post). Equally to be avoided is each individual, as in "Players do not have to face the perils of qualifying for each individual tournament" (New York Times). In both cases each alone would have been sufficient.
