He has created one of the most recognized styles in today’s modern jazz piano. It is a sultry but also romantic mixture of contemporary jazz, funk, and R&B with hints of gospel. Jazz-pianist and composer Alex Bugnon, nephew of trumpeter Donald Byrd, was born in 1958 in Montreux. His hometown regularly hosts the Montreux Jazz Festival – thus, Alex has more or less grown up with Jazz. Before moving to the U.S.A he studied music at the Conservatorium in Paris for two years. He then went to the Berklee School of Music and performed with gospel groups as a sideline. In 1990 he moved to New York, where he played in the background as a session musician with artists like Patti Austin, Freddie Jackson and Keith Sweat. He made it into the charts with his debut album “Love Season” just as with its successor, “Head over Heels”; in the R&B charts he even secured a place among the top 40. Beyond his recordings, Alex has built a loyal fan base through touring on the club and jazz festival circuits. “People in their 40s, 50s and 60s that have all of my CDs are raving about my songs,” he beams. “At the same time, college students that are more likely to be Radiohead fans are coming up to me saying, ‘I really dug that ‘Silver Finger’ song, man’ – which is really nice to hear!”
