Black Tie Blues
“Alex Donner has released “Black Tie Blues’…a refreshingly unique take on the Blues….fun originals by Donner…obviously culled from his experiences…many of the classic Blues Brothers musicians…hot band…and is donating $1 to a World Trade Center victims fund for each CD sold… a Bobby Short kind of Blues.”

White Tie
“Alex Donner has been putting together big bands and other groups for galas, balls, and other business client events for almost 15 years. Donner also had good success with a cabaret show, “New York, My Hometown”. Building on these successes, he has recruited some of New York’s top session and jazz players for this his debut album, “White Tie”. With the presence of such stalwarts as Frank Wess, Ronnie Cuber & Jay Leonhart, among others, it’s an all-star group. But its main purpose is to serve as the backdrop for Donner’s strong, harmonious baritone voice, which he applies with vigor to a list of standards…There are also some notable solos along the way … very interesting.”
