The Syncopated Times

The pandemic has brought naught but misery to a lot of musicians, no doubt about it. When artists look back on these two years—and hopefully just these two years—few will find anything to be grateful for. So give credit where it’s due to “Sweet” Megg Farrell and Ricky Alexander for finding one silver lining to this long, dark cloud over us all: while assembling a band for their first joint album, the duo had their pick of the best. “Our top choice musicians were all free,” said Megg. “That’s rare, especially rare in New York where everyone plays jazz clubs most nights of the week.”
