Neil Alexander & NAIL: Tugging At The Infinite
Click to enlarge   Click to enlarge
"All music is crossover", says Neil Alexander, a self-styled "Jazz Synthesist" and composer from Newburgh, NY. He knows what he's talking about having played thousands of gigs in about every style in 30+ years of making music. He's had ample opportunity to see where different styles intersect and how music crosses over. Well known from his ten years with The Machine (the Pink Floyd Tribute and Jam band), Neil is breaking new sonic ground with a remarkable new CD called "Tugging At The Infinite" wich features some terrific Hudson Valley musicians like Charlie Kniceley (Rashid Ali, Jack Dejohnette) on Bass and Nadav Zelnicker (Dekel Bor) on drums.
"Tugging at the Infinite" reflects Neil's many influences while showcasing the band's versatility. The CD starts with "Earlier Still", a blistering high energy jam and then suddenly changes gear with the ballad "Starlight casts no Shadow", at times reminiscent of Mark Knopfler – with a serious funk jam included. The most memorable track is undoubtedly "Everyman", a transcendent jazz pop masterpiece. The CD moves easily between funk, ambient, rock, and more traditional styles and includes two live tracks (one of them solo), all driven by Neil's extraordinary synthesizer work.
It's hard to categorize what he does, but Neil ties it all together through jazz, the original melting pot of music. "Jazz borrows from everything it co-exists with, and spawns new styles constantly." With his experience, which includes playing rock, jazz, blues, funk, electronica, ambient, classical, composing for Modern Dance and Avant Garde Theater as well as teaching Master Classes in music technology, Neil has built a formidable musical vocabulary. Neil Alexander & NAIL is a tight versatile unit, easily shifting and combining the aforementioned styles with fierce musicianship. At the core is an emphasis on improvisation and a solid foundation in Jazz. True lovers of jazz, improvisation and an exhilarating sensory experience seek them out, knowing they will shatter boundaries and test limits.
