Jovan Alexandre, originally from Wallingford, CT is a tenor saxophonist known for the brightness of his tone and the elegant bearing of his compositions. He may be situated, broadly speaking, within the penumbra of hard-bop and post-bop styles elaborated and taught in Alexandre's native New England by the iconic Jackie McLean [1931-2006] during his later, seminal years as a Connecticut resident and educator. 


Alexandre has been a soloist on recordings for drummers Ralph Peterson (Outer Reaches [2010]) and Winard Harper (Coexist, sharing the tenor spotlight with Frank Wess [2012]), Kahlil Kwame Bell (Flight [2013]), and for the South African jazz singer Nonhlanhla Kheswa (Meadowlands, Stolen Jazz [2013]).   Alexandre's first album as a leader, Collective Consciousness, will be released worldwide on February 24, 2015.
