Born: March 6 Primary Instrument: Guitar
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....
--Dean Witten, Ph.D. Music Dept. Chair, Rowan University
It was an evening of guitar extravaganza...Domschot is destined for a paramount role in the music world.
Improvisation is Alex’s forte. He doesn’t discard traditional musical structures but attempts to transcend them - the result being an original musical entity.
Domschot responds with some deft impressionistic touches to help set the mood...this is jazz without any hyphens.
...displayed a mastery of sound, style and craft...Mr Domschot is a sonic shapeshifter.
