Alexander’s strong connection to the freedom movement in the United States will be reflected in a collaborative body of work with Auguscik, who will also present compositions focusing on how above all else, love is the answer. The quintet will include pianist Miguel de la Cerna, drummer Ernie Adams, bassist Junius Paul and Polish accordionist Jaroslaw Bester.
