Alexander – Play To Win
He aptly handles all guitar, vocals, writing and arranging, while featuring Keith Dunn on harmonica, John Gerriste on drums and Peter Wassenaar on the upright bass. Background vocals are also provided. Alexander started to travel the "blues road" in 1969, joining Rod Piazza for seven years. For the next two years, he played with the legendary Aces of Chicago. With this experience, Alexander has not only become a fine bluesman, but understands the hard and winding crossroads of the blues. This recording is dedicated to Louis Myers, who passed along his blond Gibson 335 (a constant companion for 25 years) to Alexander. This CD has the blues integrity to turn things upside down.
