Tom Alexander's Lost, Eagerly Awaited Album Resurfaces After 20 Years; Releases December 10
Soundtrack/Fusion Composer's "Cinemusque" features 12 tracks dedicated to cinema's legendary directors.
This is Alexander's sixth studio album to date, which includes his work with the fusion-jazz band he co-founded, Earth Code. His "Dreams In Blue" recording released in 2020, and the digital rerelease of "What's Ahead?" became available earlier this year.
"Those tracks resurfacing out of nowhere was a surprise I never could have imagined," Alexander said recently. "It was a real gift from the musical gods."
Alexander plays piano and keyboards on the recording as well as all the other instruments. Each track is dedicated to some of Alexander's favorite filmmakers. "Growing up in my dad's movie theatre in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, was not only a joy, but an education," Alexander added. "I saw all kinds of films, and they had a lasting impact on me — not only the directors, but the composers of the films' soundtracks. People like Bernard Herrmann, Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, John Williams and so many others, resonated with me from my youth."
Alexander, who resides in South Florida, has composed for television and film, is a screenwriter and hosts or co-hosts several popular podcasts.
