Alejandro's most recent album, sung in Spanish
Scorching and cinematic Alejandro Escovedo's album "The Crossing" follows the story of two young immigrants, one from Mexico and one from Italy, as they come to the United States to pursue their American dream and in search of their punk rock idols. Not only is it Alejandro’s first album with Yep Roc; it is his first album recorded in Europe. He co-wrote and performed it with Italian band Don Antonio from Modigliana, led by guitarist and composer Antonio Gramentieri, who has a rich musical history of his own in Italy with his cult band Sacri Cuori. The album was recorded in a month in Villafranca, Italy with Brian Deck co-producing. Tonight's show features music from "The Crossing" en español, plus other songs in English.
