Neil 'Nail' Alexander / Press

“..(Neil Alexander) hits Classical, Jazz, Rock, and Electronic forms with with equal virtuosity. I hit a couple of other links of your work that I'd never heard. ALL incredibly well done. BRAVO... again! - Craig McCornock, via internet”

"...like Holdsworth and Zawinul and The Meters rolled up and served with an old school sandwich."

Lou P. (a fan) - via Email

“Keyboardist Neil Alexander has been performing for more than 30 years and has a large repertoire of original compositions that he describes as “a blend of red hot jazz, burning funk grooves and soaring soundscapes.” Neil has a genuine passion for music and his shows are always a hit.”

“The Rite of Spring is an extremely complex piece, .... It's difficult enough for a good orchestra to play it well. Neil Alexander has truly nailed the piece in his piano arrangement. He's got the harmonies and the rhythms, the textures of the music, accurately and lovingly reduced to the piano keyboard...the rhythmic and harmonic aspects of the music are clarified in this arrangement. Neil played the music with amazing command. Some parts of the score are inherently unpianistic, but [Alexander] managed to play them so accurately and with such exciting force. In short, this was a riveting experience, world class playing all the way. "Neil Alexander rediscovers the "Rite Of Spring" for solo piano" - Leslie Gerber, Woodstock Times.”

“Wow! NAIL's " Tugging at the Infinite" album makes you smarter. Had it on my iPod and completed advanced sudoku for 1st time!”

“Proudly proclaiming that there is “No electric guitar on this record”, Neil Alexander strikes a blow for keyboardists everywhere. Alexander’s instrumentals cover considerable ground between 70’s Jeff Beck, Bitches Brew-style jazz jam and John Carpenter movie soundtracks.”

"Tugging at the infinite" is another excellent record from keyboardist/composer Neil Alexander. Neil is clearly the master of his keyboard...Each piece is different, arranged with artistry and care for a rich, bold & warm sound. An excellent record.

“Neil Alexander & NAIL, a 3 piece contemporary jazz group with an original sound, played originals mixed with new arrangements of established tunes. The music kept us mesmerized for almost 2 hours.”

Terrie Goldstien - Hudson Valley Life

“...The spectrum of styles across this instrumental CD — from synth waves to hectic drums and bass-style jams — keep the disc fresh on every spin.”

“Synth & Sampler master Neil Alexander gave a standout performance at the Hopper House...Great sound, but you really have to knows what you're doing - Neil Does!”

Michael Houghton - Nyack Villager: The Jazz Scene

““Neil Alexander & NAIL…a broad musical landscape, an atmospheric collage that rolls in tender waves like long, slow mornings, and gets thick and juicy like the underbelly of chaotic midnights…and it manages to create its sound without the aid of a guitar.” –”

Dan Lanzetta, - Pulse Magazine

“Alexander's interest in music started at a very young and has produced numerous recordings since. This life long musical experience is evident in his playing. Very little on “Galvanized” gives any indication that there are only three performers, as it at often times sounds like an entire orchest”
