My name is Alexander Kuzmin.
I am a composer, arranger, multiinstrumentalist. I was
born and brought up in Sevastopol (the Crimean peninsula) in a jazz
musicians family. In my early childhood I started listening to and
playing music. I was greatly influenced by my parents’ music and by such
bands as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins,
Jaco Pastorius, John Scofield, Joe Zawinul, Marcus Miller, Stanley
Clarke, Weather Report, Earth, wind & fire, Level 42, Deep Forest, etc.
I followed my parents advice to enter a musical school and learn to play
the piano. But later I got interested in playing the bass and sax and
entered a jazz college in Kiev
