Jovan Alexandre

Jovan Alexandre is a New York City-based saxophonist originally from Connecticut. He has been playing professionally since 2007 when he debuted nationally, performing at the Grammy after-party with the Gibson/Baldwin Grammy Jazz Orchestra. Jovan has since performed, toured, or recorded with world-class musicians such as Curtis Fuller, Frank Wess, Ralph Peterson, Franklin Kiermyer, Winard Harper and others. He is the grandson of the memorable singer Fred Parris, who's single “In The Still of the Night (I'll Remember)” with The Five Satins was the only song to chart the Billboard 100 three separate times.

Jovan embraces the different cultural and musical influences he was born into. Honoring his ancestors from Haiti and Japan, he shares his faith and passion for the music to make peace and possibilities throughout his life.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
