Jazz Fest 2013 Focus: Alex McMurray

Offbeat Magazine by John Swenson May 1, 2013

On a recent Saturday evening Alex McMurray filled Siberia with an audience that hung on every word of his compositions, a catalog that ranges from wry to wistful to ribald. McMurray is adept at this solo magic, playing material mostly culled from his 2012 release I Will Never Be Alone In This Land. McMurray has also been playing shows, often with special guests, Thursday nights in the Saturn Bar, in what amounts to an intimate house party.

A little too intimate for McMurray’s taste.
