Alan has played guitar in numerous working bands since he was a
teenager, fulltime for awhile. The musical genres spanned adult
pop, rock, R&B, funk, jazz, Latin, blues, folk and country. He was
often the youngest in the group, usually working with much older
musicians. "I had the good sense to work with the older musicians
whenever I got the chance, often learning things I didn't realize I
needed to know."
This is Alan's first duo, which brings new challenges. "I have a
new respect for drummers who have tempo down to an artform,
since I'm now the main percussionist."
