Alex Lefaivre is a bass player, composer and label owner based out of Montreal, QC, Canada.
Drawing his inspiration from Montreal’s distinct urban energy, bass player Alex Lefaivre released YUL on August 3rd 2018. The album presents a series of modern jazz originals written for some of his home town’s most original musicians. Taking its name from Montreal’s airport code, YUL takes the listener on a cinematic trip through the city, where dreamy, hazy summer vibes are intertwined with a gritty, metropolitan edge. The lyrical, song-like melodies develop over interesting forms that leave a lot of room for the group to interact and showcase their conversational improvisations.
Equally proficient on both the upright and electric bass, Alex is a fearless original known for his unique artistic voice, powerful groove, instrumental virtuosity, passionate work ethic and sense of humor
