Jazz pianist Alex Bugnon has been a prolific, energetic force on the contemporary music scene for more than two decades. A renowned musician/composer/bandleader, Bugnon hales from the picturesque town of Montreux, Switzerland – site of the world famous Jazz Festival. No doubt, the annual convergence in his hometown and in his own home, of some of music’s most illustrious names played a role in his decision to pursue a musical career, as did his early friendship with Herbie Hancock. The fact that his uncle was the legendary Donald Byrd only served to further his decision.
Over these past few decades, Alex Bugnon has built a strong and loyal fan base across the country and around the world.
As the year comes to a close, Alex has released his 12th album – HARLEM.
HARLEM is a mix of original compositions and his personal take on beloved and well known songs including the classic, A Night in Tunisia, Curtis Mayfield’s Pusherman, Stevie Wonder’s Summer Soft and Burt Bacharach’s A House is Not a Home.
Alex makes his home in the historic village of Harlem, New York, and maintains his connection to his beloved Montreux.
