Alex Jacquemin is a modern jazz guitarist with a driving penchant for originality, daring and challenge. Born in France, he did not pick up his first guitar until the age of 16, but worked on his mastery of the intrument with such disciplined devotion that he was formally teaching others how to play by his fourth year. Renowned for his amazing ability to blend into any musical scenario, Alex played in a number of eclectic bands such as the electro-rock ensemble Zend Avesta, the Brazilian group Vitto and the world music band Canaïma. He also played throughout Europe in major venues and festivals, and recorded a number of albums in ever-changing styles, including the progressive jazz-rock power trio format of Underground 95-02 and the 2000 album Story of, his way of whisking early `60s Blue Note boogaloo into the future. An ambitious player, composer, arranger and bandleader, Alex brought his skills to the United States to delve deeper into shaping his own style and sound.
Alex Jacquemin’s new release combines the sounds of
European and American jazz with the rich, sensuous melodies of
Africa and the Middle East. Sexy, playful, mystical, it transports
you to new states of mind, where anything is possible.
