Born in Brittany, the Celtic province of France, raised mostly in rural North Carolina, and a traveler through Spain and Latin America now living in Mount Rainier, MD, Alex has always sought to create music that expresses his unique confluence of world cultures, what he calls “New World jazz.” A former novelist and poet with an MA from the Creative Writing Program at the University of Texas at Austin, he seeks to make music that tells stories of the exotic and the familiar--the “exotic” always being familiar to some of us. In late 2007, he released his first CD, Nostalgia for Terra Incognita, with his quartet, Amerique Latine. In 2010, he used a Prince George's Arts Council grant to release a trio recording, Second Life, with bassist Ron Brendle and drummer Thomas Garner. He plays at venues around the DC area and is available for private instruction in guitar and jazz improvisation.
