Album Notes
Alex Weiss is an award-winning composer and multi-instrumentalist who bridges the sounds of Africa the Americas and The Middle East. His focus is on beautiful melodies, and intricate rhythms draw from a wide variety of traditions.
"Beautiful Melody, in fact, is the soundtrack not to a film, but to Weiss' expansive imagination. Musically speaking, he's a bona fide vagabond tempered by uncommon discipline...While his previous recording Nourishment(2001) was a percussive tour de tour de force, Beautiful Melody Charts Weiss' maturation as a writer. Brass & woodwinds intertwine, tracing simple patterns of notes that cling to the listener's memory..."
-Joe Vanderford, Independent Weekly May, 2004

A Nice, rural-sounding, calming set of world-music tunes by Durham composer Alex Weiss who is joined by some of the members of his band and special guests artists, most notably, two Nigerians who were so happy to hear one of their songs from their homeland being performed by the group one day at a concert, they joined in and were then invited to sing on the CD. Beautiful Melody sounds unpretentiously like music produced from a well traveled soul.
Patricia Murray - Durham Skywriter
