Alexander Dubovoy Alexander Dubovoy

I grew up in the vibrant creative scene of the San Francisco Bay Area, learning from incredible musicians as a regular student at the Stanford Jazz Workshop. I learned music largely by ear with Gordon Fels and gigged locally. I don't remember a time when I didn't play music or a time when I didn't improvise.

I left home to attend Yale University (CC '16) and performed with a number of musical groups. One of my main projects was the band Newspeak. In 2014, we recorded the album Machinery of Night with 11-time Grammy-winner Jack Renner. In 2015-6, we performed commissioned pieces at the Yale University Art Gallery, completed an artistic residency at an artist commune in Austria, and toured California and Vermont. I also sang and toured around the world with Redhot & Blue, Yale's oldest coed a cappella group. I performed solo at venues worldwide, including interpreting the life of a zenmaster through song at Rakuya Label in Tokyo.

I graduated in May of 2016 and moved to Brooklyn to begin the next phase of my musical career. I am very excited to release my solo EP Portraits Drawn Without You, also recorded by Jack Renner. In New York, I am performing at storied venues like the Cornelia St. Cafe. Playing since a young age Playing since a young age

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
