Alex Bugnon

Pianist & Contemporary Jazz Superstar and His Group back on the Nighttown Stage for Exciting Weekend!

Montreux-reared Bugnon studied at a music conservatory in Paris before coming to America to continue at Boston’s famed Berklee School of Music. He spent a lot of time playing not only jazz but gospel, gigging on that time-honored southern circuit. Upon graduation he moved to New York. After spending a year driving taxicabs and teaching French at the Berlitz School, he found initial work backing R&B stars such as Patti Austin & James Ingram and Keith Sweat. It was through backing Freddie Jackson that he made the contact at then-new Orpheus Records where he recorded his first two CDs Love Season (1989) and Head Over Heels (1991), making his deepest first impressions with R&B audiences as a soulful instrumentalist du jour. A switch to Sony’s Epic Records family yielded 107 Degrees in the Shade (1991) and This Time Around (1993), upon which time he jumped to RCA Records for Tales from the Bright Side (1995). From there he segued into the four albums he did for Narada Records, an associated label that specialized in smooth jazz and new age.

Beyond his recordings, Alex has built a loyal fan base through constant touring on the club and jazz festival circuits. Just last year he passed the great Dizzy Gillespie’s record of playing Washington, D.C.’s Blues Alley for 12 consecutive Thanksgivings with his own lucky 13th visit. That most recent gig found his new music from Going Home receiving quite the warm welcome. “People in their 40s, 50s and 60s that have all of my CDs were raving about the new songs,” he beams. “At the same time, college students that are more likely to be Radiohead fans were coming up to me saying, ‘I really dug that ‘Silver Finger’ song, man’ - which was really nice to hear!”
