Fiona's Comments

Sweetheart vocals amp up the cutesy cupid coupling of Martina DaSilva and Ricky Alexander.

About the Album

Ricky Alexander presents his debut album, "Strike Up The Band", as a celebration of classic swing music. With rising star vocalist Martina DaSilva and the legendary guitarist James Chirillo alongside, the band brings new life to one of the greatest hits of the golden era of jazz, “A Kiss To Build A Dream On”. Recorded on eight vintage ribbon microphones, this song truly captures the warmth and honest sound of the golden era of jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
