Brilliant composition and great players support the boy/girl duo, Alex & Sam.
He’s Alex,the mad genius who puts it all together and sings ala Randy Newman meets the Beatles. She’s Sam (that’s short for Samantha) the wispy, jazzy girl voice with a wide range. Sam’s a colorful easy-going confetti spray on an autumn day….think cherry blossoms, long sunshine and a crisp breeze.
‘Land of the Free’ reminds me of hanging around the swimming pool at the club in the early ’70s. Large Chicago style sound with keys minus horns. Though there’s no steel drum, ‘Laura’ has a Carribean vibe. Submarine Song is a favorite: an original tale reminiscent of Mickey Mouse and Rocky Raccoon meet Minnie while adventuring in a Yellow Submarine.
