Voorst, Alex Van: The gentle fox
Alex van Voorst is born in The Netherlands, The Hague, on April the 16th of 1963. He started to play the acoustic guitar when he was seven years old. He really got obsessed with the guitar when he was 15. His main influences where Leo Kottke and Ry Cooder for their fingerpicking and bottleneck.

In 1996 a boyhood's dream was fulfilled. Alex was able to make a CD with his greatest model Jan Akkerman. He met Jan several years ago after one of his concerts. Alex asked Jan Akkerman to produce his third CD 'The gentle fox' and Jan responded to this tentative request.

The musical support could not have been better. Jan Akkerman brought in his own band.

The album is nearly fully acoustic.
