An excellent keyboard player and Synth Guru. Neil has a tremendous amount of musical ability and is able to craft some amazing synth sounds coupled with some excellent playing.I will be back for more.
I am a former trumpet player and still sing a bit--lifelong interest in music. Was brought to realize the amazing skills of NA by Michael torsone (B3) and John Scanlon, Keyboardist and former core/ operator of "the Poughkeepsie Jazz Project". Having seen Neil Alexander perform at the Colony Cafe, Woodstock, I can attest to his profound technical prowess in the keyboard and electronic music realm. Also, he seems to possess a depth of familiarity with the jazz world from which he draws and synthesizes (no pun intended) his artful product. Henry Matheus, Poughkeepsie, NY
