Noted by Ben Ratliff of the New York Times as a saxophonist who is “…making the connections among about
70 years’ worth of contemplative, articulate and light-toned players”, Manhattan-based saxophonist and
composer Alex LoRe is one of the most in demand alto saxophonists on the current New York City jazz scene.
Internationally acclaimed saxophonist and educator Bunky Green says LoRe “…will emerge to become one of
the leading voices on the international jazz scene.” Saxophonist George Garzone describes his playing as “bold
and unforgiving”, with “…a beautiful sound; he understands the concept of melody.” With a strong upbringing in
classical music, LoRe’s playing and compositions are influenced by many genres, ranging from European
classical music through today’s most influential artists on both the jazz and popular music scenes.
LoRe has been featured at venues such as New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMa), the Jazz at Ravinia
Festival held at the Stean’s Institute for Young Artists in Chicago, the Monterey Jazz Festival in California, and
the Jacksonville and Clearwater Jazz Festivals in Florida, among others
