After recording his sixth thru ninth albums for the Narada label (2000’s As Promised, 2001’s Soul Purpose, 2003’s Southern Living and 2005’s Free), Alex knew his next move would not be another album along those lines. In 2007, he lucked out when Michael Cuscuna approached him to do a comprehensive Ultimate Alex Bugnon compilation – including something from every one of his albums and even allowing Alex a hand in approving and suggesting selections. The Ultimate Alex Bugnon was released on the Mosaic label. This bought him some crucial creative incubation time while also giving him something fresh to sell during his never-ending touring. 2008 brought a year of intense soul searching and led him to record and release Going Home ( 2010) under his own label, Xela Records, in a traditional sextet format, adding trumpet, saxophone and trombone to his trio, featuring drummer Poogie Bell and bassist Victor Bailey. Alex will release Moment Of Truth this year (2013), his 12th album and second on Xela.
Beyond his recordings, Alex has built a loyal fan base through constant touring on the club and jazz festival circuits. He has played Washington, D.C.’s Blues Alley for 17 consecutive Thanksgivings weekends, passing the great Dizzy Gillespie’s record of 12 times. He constantly practices piano, listen to and writes music. Alex lists Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Red Garland, Kenny Kirkland, Mulgrew Miller and Keith Jarrett as his biggest influences.
