ABOUT

I am interested in a few different types of projects. For the past 3 years, I have been playing a lot of old jazz from the 20's through the 40's. I would be very interested in matching up with a rhythm section, violinist, keys, or lead guitar for this project. My preference is in a small duo/trio, with violin and vocal. I am also interested in either being a sideman, or joining a group that is interested in originals, two keyboard 60' s stuff, blues, cool vocally oriented acoustic music, etc. I have great acoustic guitar chops, a new custom strat, great keyboards, production and arrangement, and am extremely versatile, enjoying acoustic, jazz, blues, latin, reggae, funk, etc. What I am not interested in is minimalist, loud, ear hurting metal, rap, etc. I also have the BIG ROOM which is now built and ready to go for new projects in 2015. This is a great room to record, video, rehearse for shows, rehearse for the studio and just to chill. Contact me at: alanarizonacreativeworks
