The Alice ProjectThe Alice Project, The Big Number (Clown Milk Records 1998) - The Alice Project is a polished pop/rock band from New York, headlined by singer Alice Leon. With a decade's experience as a performing artist, Leon shows a deft touch on this enjoyable release.

Alice LeonIn addition to handling lead vocalists, Leon wrote and arranged all of the songs, and plays acoustic guitar. Rounding out the band are Scott Monetti, who provides keyboards and percussions, Scott Strunk on drums and percussions, Mickey Angel on lead guitars, and Jim Arra on bass guitar and backing vocals.

Alice LeonSinger Alice Leon has solid credentials, having written songs for the soap opera "The Guiding Light," and appearing twice on Star Search.

The best track on the album is the radio-friendly pop number, "Jane is on the Phone (on the Island)," with its catchy beat and polyrhythmic sound. Also moving beyond the dorky cover are such pop numbers as "Good Bye Old Friend" and "Shine on Me."

All told, The Big Number has an easygoing and accessible sound.
