Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, now distributes Alex Acuña: Acuña-Hoff-Mathisen Trio in Concert, a DVD package of the world-class trio performing the high quality sounds, colors, and textures they orchestrate, from DrumChannel.

Flanked by two world-renowned music luminaries, keyboardist Jan Gunnar Hoff and guitarist Per Mathisen, Acuña has assembled an outstanding jazz-fusion group on the Acuña-Hoff-Mathisen Trio in Concert DVD. Footage includes over 60 minutes of the live, in-studio performance, commentary from the band members on their collaborative and creative efforts, and an in-depth interview with the trio by legendary drummer Terry Bozzio. The DVD package also comes with a bonus audio CD of the trio’s performance.

Voted the best Latin/Brazilian percussionist in Modern Drummer magazine's Readers Poll for five consecutive years, Alex Acuña has a vast knowledge and expertise of percussion rhythms. His South American and Caribbean roots, combined with his understanding of contemporary and classical music, make him a complete and skilled master musician—one of the most sought after of our time. Best known for his work with artists such as Elvis Presley, Diana Ross, and the band Weather Report, he is a player that exhibits innovation, energy, and pure heart.
