A little forlorn, a little stabbed, still beating.

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 explores and brings new life to songs that were popular in their day but brushed aside by time. Recorded on eight vintage ribbon microphones, this album 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 and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
