Don Alias Born December 25, 1939(1939-12-25) New York City, New York United States Genres Jazz, jazz fusion Occupations Musician Instruments Drums, Conga drums, Percussion instruments, djembe Associated acts Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock Website Official Website Don Alias Charles 'Don' Alias[1] (b. December 25, 1939 New York City, New York; d. March 29, 2006 New York City) was an American jazz percussionist. Alias was best known for his skill at congas and other hand drums. He was, however, a capable drum kit performer: Alias played drums on the song "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down" from Bitches Brew (1969) when neither Lenny White nor Jack DeJohnette were able to capture the marching band rhythm requested by trumpeter Miles Davis.[2] Alias performed on hundreds of recordings, and was perhaps best known for his associations with Miles Davis and saxophonist David Sanborn, though he also performed or recorded with the group Weather Report, singer Joni Mitchell, pianist Herbie Hancock, The Brecker Brothers, Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny and many others. Alias was born in New York City and arrived in Boston in the early 1960s intending to study medicine but, after playing congas in a number of local bands, made an abrupt career switch.
