I Believe A Change is the culmination of Alex’s collaboration with Snarky Puppy guitarist Bob Lanzetti. The album features four covers and an original composition by Lanzetti. The album spans multiple genres, resulting in a unique and energizing blend of jazz, funk, fusion, rock, and soul. Alex explains, “I Believe A Change is an album of music that I love. The focus of this record is on the overall vibe rather than showcasing musical talent. I was honored to have Bob Lanzetti join me to produce the record and bring it to life. The tracks cover a lot of musical ground, from Sam Cooke’s soulful ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’ to Bob Lanzetti’s fusion-based ‘Collapsible Pants.’ I’m really excited to share this with you all.”
