Alex Bugnon has been a prolific, energetic force on the contemporary music scene for almost three decades. A renowned musician, composer and bandleader, Bugnon hales from the picturesque town of Caux, Switzerland – 4 miles above Montreux, site of the world famous Jazz Festival. No doubt, the annual convergence in his hometown and in his own home, of some of music’s most illustrious names played a role in his decision to pursue a musical career, as did his early friendship with Herbie Hancock. The fact that his uncle was the legendary Donald Byrd only served to further his decision. He released one more album under the Epic label, the best selling, This Time Around (1993), before signing with RCA for the critically acclaimed Tales from the Bright Side (1995). As the new millenium began, Alex was also beginning anew.

Only those who work with me on a regular basis are allowed to drop the title. And you will not be here long enough to work with me on a regular basis. Samet paled visibly at my words. Is that a threat?" He questioned, anger in his voice. No, merely good odds. Dr. Samet stood smugly at my side, gloating without saying a word. He believed he had won the argument, and I felt no need to disabuse him of that notion. This would still be a failure. 343 did not have what it took to take care of 682. "Are you prepared, 343?" Samet spoke into the microphone. Below us, 343 gave a thumbs up.
