Nunya (Gateway Records 2015)
Listen to "Goodbye" from the new album
Floodgate (Stunt Records, 2009)
On this album we hear a new expressive style of music compared to the more bluesy based performances that Alain has presented in the past. One feels a certain degree of inspiration from for example, Antonio Carlos Jobim in the sound of the vocal harmonies mixing with the flute in the airy "Who I Am", where Apaloo is in the company of the formidable master-guitarist, Kurt Rosenwinkel ; yet some other tracks might recall high-life, but allways with a high level of original identity from the composer .
Apaloo is also a brilliant singer and one is impressed by the attention to detail in this well made album, which is delightful to listen to, every time. A phenomenal album from a now resident, budding world star that with "Flood Gate" has taken a step from promise, into full bloom.
