Alejandro Escovedo with Don Antonio

The Crossing is the new concept album Alejandro Escovedo wrote with Italian composer Don Antonio and his band. The record tells the story of Diego and Salvo, two immigrant boys, one from Mexico, the other from Italy, traveling in the United States. Diego and Salvo are into the Beat poets and punk rock, like the MC5 and The Stooges. Alejandro and Don Antonio tell us how The Crossing came to be and how it connects to their own lives. And Alejandro tells stories from his punk rock days, like the time his band opened for the Sex Pistols.
