He is Grammy-and-Juno winning Canadian reed royalty. Saxophonist Alex Dean has shared stages with legends across the musical spectrum from the Boss Brass, Mel Torme, Gil Evans and Kenny Wheeler to Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Ray Charles and the Toronto Symphony…and that barely scratches the surface. His unique contributions to jazz as a recording artist, educator, clinician, and artistic director are as significant as they come. And if you are lucky enough to see it…when Alex Dean, in the middle of a ripping tenor solo removes his glasses, wipes his brow, and lets fly with yet another chorus…you could be forgiven for exhaling slowly and staring in wonderment at what you have just witnessed.
