Off The Cuff - Live at Meadowlark

The Artist

Enmanuel Alexander

Live Funk
Enmanuel Alexander is an artist to keep an eye on. His first full-length album Off The Cuff – Live at Meadowlark is a live album that showcases the raw talent of Enmanuel and his group of funk/jazz players. Every element of this album is audiophile-worthy, from the in-the-room sound of the drums, the conversational style of the bass, lively and dynamic guitar and keyboard tones, and soulfully played trumpet. With a mix of original cuts by Enmanuel and some classics by Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, this collection of music is the perfect mix of familiar and modern. Recorded live and mixed at Octave Studios on the Pyramix, Off The Cuff – Live at Meadowlark is available on SACD and digital download.

Enmanuel Alexander

Enmanuel Alexander is a Denver musician with a passion for amplifying and elevating Black musicianship throughout Colorado. Through his weekly residency at Meadowlark Bar, he brings the community together with "Off the Cuff," an interactive improv session that showcases the incredible talent of Black and Brown musicians and artists from the Denver metro area and beyond. Drawing inspiration from mentors like Ron Miles and Wes Watkins, Enmanuel is dedicated to creating a platform for underrepresented voices in the music scene.

His journey in music began at a young age, falling in love with sound through piano, saxophone, drums, percussion, guitar, and bass. Graduating with a BM and concentrating in guitar as a recipient of the prestigious "Dale Bruning Jazz & Improvised Music Endowed Scholarship" at Metropolitan State University of Denver in May 2020, Enmanuel has honed his craft and continues to explore new genres and techniques of expression under the guidance of teachers like Dave Devine, Gonzalo Teppa, Dawn Clement, and Shane Endsley.

Enmanuel's solo live-looping project, "Namebackwards," defies the norms of instrumental music, weaving emotionally moving soundscapes and hypnotic grooves that evoke a sense of blissful nostalgia.

As he continues to expand his horizons and inspire others through music, Enmanuel plays a pivotal role in enriching the vibrant musical landscape of Colorado and beyond.
