As one of today’s leading bassists, Hamm has released four critically-acclaimed studio recordings. On Radio Free Albemuth (1988), Kings Of Sleep (1989), The Urge (1991), and Outbound (2000), Hamm showcased his unique style of playing the bass as a lead instrument both within a solo environment and various ensemble formats on a genre-spanning spectrum of repertoire that merged rock, jazz, fusion, classical, country, and urban sounds.
Alex has also been active in blending music with works of art and literature. In 2007, he contributed a solo for Egyptian artist Nader Sadek’s project, “Faceless.” The song was only to be heard in a Chelsea art gallery in Manhattan . In 2012, he performed live at the Feature Inc Gallery in New York’s Lower East Side, for a musical interpretation of the works of visual artist Douglas Melini. He is currently working on a musical spoken-word project “The Bestiary” with author Bradford Morrow. He also has an upcoming World Music-Art-Ecology-Architecture project, Planetary Coalition, which was kick-started at Union Square in June 2012, at the annual Make Music New York Festival, sponsored by Guitar World Magazine.
