Noted by the New York Times as a saxophonist who is “...making the connections among about 70 years’ worth of contemplative, articulate and light-toned players”, saxophonist and composer Alex LoRe's playing and compositions are influenced by a variety of genres, ranging from European classical music through today’s most influential artists on both the jazz and popular music scenes. Originally from Tarpon Springs, Florida, LoRe frequents some of New York City’s most revered jazz performance venues, including Smalls Jazz Club, The Jazz Gallery, and Jazz Standard. Internationally, he has performed throughout the Netherlands, Australia, Israel, and Canada.
Mr. LoRe has released three albums—“Dream House” (2014), and “More Figs and Blue Things” (2016) on acclaimed saxophonist Greg Osby’s label, Inner Circle Music, and most recently "Karol" on Challenge Records International. The albums have been praised by The New York Times, Downbeat Magazine, and Jazzwise Magazine (UK), among others. LoRe is a member of saxophonist Lucas Pino’s “No Net nonet”, which has held a monthly residency at Smalls Jazz Club in NYC for over 6 years. He is also the co-founder of “This, Now,” an 11-piece chamber ensemble that strives to further integrate the fabrics of through-composed music with the improvisatory nature of jazz. He currently lives in Brooklyn.
