"A Wilder Alias" is an album by American vocalists Jackie Cain and Roy Kral featuring performances recorded in 1973 and released on the CTI label in 1974.

Jazz vocal duo Jackie Cain & Roy Kral's 1974 CTI release A Wilder Alias features the brilliant vocal interplay and crisply harmonized lines the two were known for, albeit in a more modal and experimental setting befitting the aesthetic of the time period. Rather than covering standards here, most of the melodies are sung without actual lyrics – and the lyrics that are here are more like sung poetry – making for vocals that blend right in next to the other instruments. In that sense, such tracks as the sprightly, swinging "Niki's Song," the expansive title track, and the fast-moving "Waltz for Dana" bring to mind something along the lines of McCoy Tyner – Kral is a superb keyboardist as well as singer – backing the vocal ensemble Free Design. It also doesn't hurt that joining Jackie & Roy here are bassist Harvie Swartz, drummer Steve Gadd, vibraphonist Roy Pennington, flutist Hubert Laws, and saxophonist Joe Farrell. These are ambitious, funky, and somewhat fusion-style cuts that fans of '70s jazz should certainly check out.
