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.
