(For almost three decades singer-songwriter Jorge Alejandro has been one of the consistent performers in Central Texas. He's won numerous awards and collaborated with a variety of big Tex-Mex names.)

Jorge Alejandro celebrates his new CD release party Wednesday, Oct. 6 at the Cadillac Bar with special guests Michael Salgado, Ram Herrera,

 Jay Perez, Mariachi Uno, SaborSachion, and others. Tickets are $10-$12 - call (210)-214-1861.

A JAK recording artist and award-winning singer/songwriter Alejandro has released his latest CD, “El Ladron de tu Amor.”

The CD features 10 songs, (65 % original) including the first single “El Ladron de tu Amor,” which has been sent out to radio stations across Central and South Texas.

Alejandro, also an award-winning and in-demand studio producer, said he worked hard on these new tunes.

These are songs about heartache and heartbreak, hope and faith,” said Alejandro. “I think fans will enjoy the romantic messages as well as the dance rhythms.”

In other recent news, Jorge Alejandro was one of 15 finalists in the Songwriting Contest for Hope and Justice in a competition of over 200 composers.

“Levanten La Voz,” which Alejandro co-wrote with his brother Alfredo Knott is the tune that made the finals and iot won third place.

Other local finalists included Bebo Cardenas, René René and Jesse Farias of La Tropa F plus doctors Rachel Cruz and Josie Méndez Negrette. It’s not the lottery, but it’s the next best thing.

“I wrote the two songs I submitted as a story with a diplomatic protest,” said Alejandro, who
dropped his last name, Knott, when he became a solo recording artist.

Other finalists include songwriters from Laredo (Los Tres Reyes featuring Gilberto Puente), Dallas, the Rio Grande Valley, Puerto Rico, Mexico, California and yes, Arizona.

The 51-year-old vocalist, whose father is Anglo-American, was born to Yolanda Ornelas in Villa Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico where the music bug bite him when he attended his first concert at 14.

“I moved to Texas in 1973 in search of a big city and larger opportunities,” Alejandro said of his reason for crossing the border to the land of opportunity.

A year later he became a bass player with Los Tipicos. Then, what is now ironic, he joined the vocal duo of René & René. It is also ironic that Rene’s last name is the same as his mothers, Ornelas, and are both now vying for the same prize.

In regard to the songwriting competition, Alejandro said, “René René was one of my first influences and inspirations because he’s a good songwriter.”

Jorge Ramírez was the other ‘René.’ Next Alejandro and Ramírez hooked up with Joe Revelez to become Rio Rami, a Tejano group that had great success in Mexico – while simultaneously playing bass in the Ramiro Cervera Orchestra before finally forming Jorge Alejandro y La Paz in 1981.

In fact the Rio Rami album was produced with none other than Marco Antonio Solís. The 1980s was a good decade as he released 45 rpm singles, cassettes and 33 1/3 rpm albums on the Cara, SAS, Moni, Joey, Del Rey and CBS record labels, not to mention becoming the host of his own television show and receiving several Tejano Music Awards nominations.

Then his recording as a soloist became virtually non-existent because he became a highly sought-after recording engineer and studio musician, songwriter and singer.

“Yes, I did record, but always as a part of other projects,” Alejandro said of his absence from radio’s airwaves. “Some were international hits in other genres such as reggaeton.

As a singer, I did backup vocals for Masizzo, Mazz, Mesquite and he was featured in several compilations. As a songwriter, he wrote “Sin Ella,” “Que Traigan Botellas” and “Serveme Otra Cantinero” for Michael Salgado; also “Señorita Tequila” and “Hay un Corazón” for Jay Pérez.

As a producer/engineer he did recording sessions with Reyli, Dinastia Norteña sometimes also playing bass, cowbells, timbales and other percussion instruments as a studio musician.

Besides being in demand, he was also selected the 2005 Academy of Tejano Musicians and Artists’ “Percussionist of the Year.”

JORGE ALEJANDRO Y LA PAZ REGROUP

This year, Alejandro, who has not recorded in ten years as a soloist, decided it was time to
reconnect with his fans.

“However I have been jamming here and there,” Alejandro said in regard to his sitting in, singing and playing congas and timbales with various groups.

Alejandro’s latest compact disc, “El Ladron de Tu Amor” (“The Thief of Your Love”), of which he wrote 65 percent of the songs, as can be expected is very international with a sprinkling of Tejano here and there.

In addition, the multi-talented musician, who celebrated his birthday on August 14th says, “I re-recorded “Señor Bolero,” “No Digas Nada,” “Poquito de Pecado,” “Que Gano” and “Dos Monedas” because people request them and fans can’t find those records anymore.

“Despues De Ti,” penned by Beto Ramón, is another fan favorite and one tune for which a video was produced by the late Jerry De La Rosa five years ago.

“I’ve always been a romantic on the melody and my forte is the ballad. Unfortunately that’s not what la raza likes, but I still wrote and recorded ‘Vuelve.’ ”
