Xander had considerable health troubles right from birth and spent the first months of his life in the neo natal ICU. For the first years of his life, no one knew if the damage was permanent or not. Fortunately, Xander’s doing great now.
His father is a jazz bass player, thus the heavy lead bass lines and bass solo intro in “Xander’s Meander”.
Xander was able to attend the premier, but stayed snuggly under blankets with his mom and dad.
Composer: Jimmy Lange
Jimmy (Jimmie, JeeMai…) Lange, is a long time friend and amazing musician. It’s said that any musician’s music sounds better with a little of JeeMai’s help. Jimmie has produced the Little Red Rocks festival in Lyons for the past 15 years, bringing artists from across the country out to perform under the stars in the Colorado mountains. He has a heart of gold and he tickles the ivory, like nobody’s business! His rock, reggae, blues, and jazz work is inspirational. His smile, infectious. Thanks Jimmy! We love you!
