Album Description

“Strike Up the Band” captures the true spirit of the classic swing lineage in a fresh and invigorated way. Alexander and the band keep the tradition alive with a beautifully warm, soft and lyrical sound. The band navigates chord changes in interesting and original ways while staying melodic and true to the intensity of swing. The band brings new life to one of the greatest hits of the golden era of jazz, “A Kiss to Build a Dream On.” As with many classic records of the time, the album was recorded on eight vintage ribbon microphones, delivering the genuinely warm and honest sound of the golden era of jazz.
