Alexander Boynton Jr.

Your new record is called "Doo Bee Doo Bop" fill me in on the name?

The pronunciation is /dü:bē:dü:bäp/ noun 1. A moment filled with tingling anticipation. 2. The brief pause before the meeting of two powerful forces. 3. The flash of realization that a momentous event is about to occur. 4. The point at which a buildup of energy is about to burst forth
That’s Doo Bee Doo Bop!!!

How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?

I have been writing, producing and demo’ing songs for years in my project studio. The magic of completing a great song is such a rewarding feeling and with that feeling comes the burning desire to get these tunes, the music, the art, these babies to the listener. This is one force that pushed my concept. The other driving force is my love for the stage, the love of entertaining. My goal is to take my band “Alexander A-train R&B Orchestra” to as many stages and shows as possible.

Who all is on the tracks?

The producer on Doo Bee Doo Bop is the great Jeff Lorber. Jeff produced the record, engineered, mixed it and did some playing on it as well. We recorded it at Jeff’s Pacific Palisades Studio. Also, on the record Doo Bee Doo Bop is Phil Perry on “Real Live Woman”, Paul Jackson Jr. on “Soul Sista” and “It Never Rains in Southern California”, David Mann on “Movie Bass Song”, Rick Braun on “So Long Ago”, Jeff Golub on “Frisky Boogaloo”. Other players were Toney Maiden of Rufus (guitar and vocals), Lenny Castro (percussion), Tony Moore (Drums), Chelsea Nicole (vocals and bgs) and more…

How did U get these cats?

I contacted Jeff Lorber, George Duke, Brian Cumbersome and Bob Baldwin when looking for a producer and I picked Jeff. I met with Jeff in L.A. we sat down and started drawing out the map for the project. I always wanted to try doing a Quincy Jones’ style of project Quincy knew how to put the right players together. With my compositions and bass I explained my concept to Jeff and we started putting together the map. Jeff did a great job in helping me to find the right musicians and featured guest that would work well with my style of writing.

What is it that people love about your music and stage show

It’s that feeling that grabs hold with a sing-able melodic melody and infectious groove. The stage show is a listening and danceable affair with its very romantic and audience pleasing elements. Wow, did I just say that…!

What’s your favorite non-music activity?

I like motorcars with rag-tops and the open road; I also like the creative process of website developing,; I am also a part-time instructor at the University of British Columbia in Continuing Studies.
