Jazz in the Springs will be featuring two dynamic artists, Michael Lington and Alex Bugnon.

Multi-talented saxophonist, producer and composer Michael Lington recently released his ninth solo project, Second Nature, due out on Copenhagen Music in April 2016. A native of Denmark, Lington is a purveyor of contemporary jazz. The grandson of well-known Danish band leader Otto Lington — an early proponent of jazz in Scandinavia — Lington began performing at a young age as a member of the world-renowned Tivoli Boys Guard. Lington, who became a U.S. citizen in 2008, has performed numerous times for the Danish Royal Family, including the wedding reception of Crown Prince Frederik, the country’s future king. Aside from maintaining his own hectic touring schedule, Lington has toured alongside such starts as Barry Manilow, Bobby Caldwell, Randy Crawford and Michael Bolton.

Alex Bugnon is a Swiss pianist and composer. He grew up attending the Montreux Jazz Festival in his hometown of Montreux in Switzerland and he identifies this as the beginning of his passion for jazz music. He attended the Paris Conservatory of Music for two years, then moved to the U.S. and went to the Berkley School of Music whilst performing as an accompanist to gospel groups. He spent four years working as a session musician in New York, backing urban and jazz performers such as Patti Austin, Freddie Jackson, James Ingram, and Keith Sweat. To date, he has won two Soul Train Music Awards.

Saxophonist, composer and producer Steven Eugene Grove began playing piano in the second grade and turned to the saxophone at the age of nine or ten. His teacher gave him a classical education on the instrument, which he followed at the University of Miami’s School of Music, where he became interested in jazz. Upon graduation, he initially remained in Miami doing sessions and playing in bands such as Expose. He then moved to Los Angeles and joined Tower of Power, remaining with the group about four years. Following this experience, he freelanced, doing sessions and working in backup bands, his clients including Joe Cocker, Eurythmics, The Gap Band, Huey Lewis & the News, Elton John, Eros Ramazotti, and Richard Marx. At the end of the ’90s, Grove developed the persona of “Euge Groove”, a corruption of his real name, and recorded a demo that soon landed him with Warner Bros. Records. Euge Groove, his debut album, was released in May 2000. At the time, the saxophonist toured in Tina Turner’s backup band. Several CDs with different labels followed. His latest CD “Still Euge” was released this year. The name of his 10th solo project sums up his feelings while making it. “First ‘Still’ represents me being able to be me! What I was going for on the album is exactly what I was going for 16 years ago when Euge Groove came out. It’s smooth jazz and I’m proud to call it that. Second, ‘Still’, from Psalm 46:10, perfectly describes who I am these days … I know how blessed I am on so many levels. I am truly ‘Still’ Euge.”
