Listen to an interview with Alex by Rick Bolling on WPFW 89.3 FM in Washington, DC.

Portland, Oregon

The production values and recording quality are excellent, you and the guys all play well and have a nice chemistry, and I like your writing. The latin treatments of standards (Chelsea Bridge, etc.) are well done and your vocalist has a nice feel for French and Portuguese.

New York City

I love your CD. I can't imagine how you got so many different feels. The ideas are great, the singer is great, the soprano sax . . . everything is just wonderful.

Austin, Texas

A bridge builder par excellence. . . . I see your nieces in my head on their toes. Dancing, dancing themselves silly because that's what little girls do especially if they are lucky enough to dance to their uncle's music!

Ilusão da Semelhança

Alex é, além de vizinho, um chapa franco-americano, apaixoado pelo Brasil e pela música brasileira. O poder da argumentação do Alex, arrebata. As entonações que tira da sua viola tem algo de bossa, algo da briza de Pat Metheny e alma de Cassandra Wilson (que descobri com ele), mas também algo de angústia. A angústia pessoal de uma alma incapaz de suportar os horrores deste mundo. Podemos ouvir nas suas notas uma confissão, como se estivesse tentando organizar todos os barulhos pós-modernos numa melodia suave, por mais recóndito e velado que seja seu desabafo.
