Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: March 6

Guitarist Alex Domschot’s sound, style, use of space, range of colors, technique, and overall craft has garnered praise from critics - and drawn comparisons with the likes of John Scofield, Allan Holdsworth and Bill Frisell. This “sonic shapeshifter” is a highly credentialed musician and composer with an educational resume and list of performing credits as long as his arm. His release, Venusian Commute, is at once a testimony to his exquisite musicianship and a statement of uncommon sensitivity in addressing modern creative jazz.

Domschot’s recording and performing credits include Clay Aiken, American Symphony Orchestra, Tony Bennett, Petula Clark, Rosemary Clooney, Harry Connick Jr., Joe Farrell, Carl Fontana, Ann Gillian, Freddie Hubbard, Percy Jones, Morganna King, Henry Mancini, Maureen McGovern, Monk Montgomery, Maria Muldaur, Judy Neimack, Anthony Newley, Michael Pedicin, Jr., Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Raoul Romero, Carl Saunders, Jack Sheldon, Vic Stevens, Third Premise, Three Degrees, Leslie Uggams, and Kit Walker, among others....
