How To Book ALEX BUGNON For Your Event!
may be available for your next special event!
The soulful, funky contemporary jazz of
Montreux-born keyboardist Alex Bugnon (boon-yahn') has set him apart from his peers.
Bugnon's R&B pedigree is, in fact, perfectly legitimate. He gigged with the gospel groups Clara Mahomes and The
Gospel Leviticus while attending the Berklee College of Music (after
attending the Paris Conservatory of Music for two years), and later
spent four years in New York recording and touring with
Austin, Freddie Jackson,
Ingram, and Keith Sweat. His 1989
debut "Love Season," which reached #2 on the Billboard
R&B charts, was nominated for best jazz album at the Soul Train
Awards. Soul Train similarly honored Bugnon for his 1991 release,
"107 Degrees in the Shade." Bugnon was also honored by Black
Radio Exclusive as Best New Artist for his chart-topper, "Head
Inspired by his jazz musician father, and uncle,
trumpet great Donald Byrd, Alex Bugnon cultivated his love for
a wide range of jazz and soul-based artists and styles - from
Memphis Slim and Bill Evans to
Hancock, Thelonius Monk, Art Blakey, and
Wind & Fire. "They used to take me every year to the
Montreux Jazz Festival, which was a hometown affair," he says.
"I was inspired by everything I heard, and knew from my early
teens that I was going to be a professional musician. When I was six
years old, I saw my first
Franklin concert on her first European tour - WOW! I remember
having a huge reaction to her music, and felt that my later
experiences playing gospel helped me progress as a jazz player."
A nod to his funk origins, Bugnon's 2000 Narada Jazz
debut, "Alex Bugnon... As Promised" was one of the year's
most popular contemporary jazz hits. After five years of touring, Alex
Bugnon made a promise to his fans eager for a new album. "The
album and its title really spoke to the people who asked me - I hope
they knew it was for them." By all accounts, his scores of fans
around the world received the message loud and clear "...As Promised" soared to #5 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart
and dominated top slots on radio airplay charts.
Throughout his performing and recording career, Alex
Bugnon has learned the fine art of simplicity. "On my early
recordings, I was not as fully 'inside' the piano as I am now. With
practice, experience, and simply the process of maturing as a
musician, I've learned to use the piano to its fullest capacity. In
this way, I'm paying homage to my mentors like
Herbie, Art Tatum, and
Bill Evans. In the past, there was always too much going on - big
arrangements that used a million tracks, for example. I'm trying
harder to expose the melody now, and the further I go, the more
minimal I like to make the production. The new songs have the piano at
the forefront, and I think they are more exciting to listen to."

- Any Love
- Heart of New York
- So in Love
- Going out
- Yearning for Your Love
