He combines elements of jazz, pop and classical guitar to create a sound that is singular and accessible. “What keeps me going ia the idea that people out there really care about what I do, the idea that I’ve made a difference for someone.”
A meeting of 2 contemporary jazz giants. Contemporary jazz keyboardist and recipient of two Soul Train Music Awards, Alex Bugnon grew up going to the Montreux Jazz Festival in his hometown in Switzerland. He moved to the United States and spent 4 years working as a session musician, backing urban and jazz performers such as Patti Austin, Freddie Jackson, James Ingram, and Keith Sweat. Classically trained at the International School of Classical Guitar, Marc Antoine first became known to urban jazz audiences when he toured with Basia in 1988. He endeared himself to a generation of contemporary jazz fans with his first solo album, Classical Soul.
