Alex Budman



Alex Budman is an active musician of 20 years with performing experience on all saxophones, clarinets, flutes, electric and acoustic basses. His versatility has allowed him to perform and record with a wide range of artists including Liza Minnelli, Rosemary Clooney, Erykah Badu, Christopher Cross, Boz Scaggs, Eric Clapton, Bettye LaVette, The Funk Brothers, Wendy and Lisa, Busta Rhymes, Jesus Diaz, Glide Memorial Church Band and the San Jose Symphony.

As a bandleader in the San Francisco Bay Area, Alex directed his 16-piece Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, playing more than 300 shows and recording two albums. The second, Instruments of Mass Pleasure, was released in 2005 to critical acclaim. Since his move to Los Angeles, Alex has been in heavy demand as a sideman and soloist, playing jazz, funk, pop, hip-hop and classical - all with a style of his own.

Most recently, Alex started up an exciting young big band with composer/trombonist Jeremy Levy. He can also be found playing in the big bands of Clare Fischer, Kim Richmond, Steve Huffsteter, Chris Walden, Ed Neumeister, Mike Barone and Tim Davies.
