Over the past five (5) years, we have heard Brian Culbertson, Roger Smith, JEFF LORBER, and other keyboard players come out with very good CD's and songs. However, somewhere along the way, we kept asking, "Where is ALEX BUGNON?" or "ALEX BETTER COME STRONG ON HIS NEXT CD". Well, my man is back.....and he brings it on with AUTHORITY!! From the very funky acoustic piano and bass line of ONWARD, UPWARD, to the very good version of MARY J. BLIGES', "ALL THAT I CAN SAY" with the smoldering RHODES sound, and featuring CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS on VOCALS, ALEX gives you your moneys worth. He gets really mellow on some groovy rhythem songs with his signature acoustic piano. If you are an ALEX fan,....like me,...i think this might be his finest work. THIS CD is a "SPEND YOUR LAST $20, and live off the groove" work of art. Scale of 1-10....30! He is on another level with this CD. ITS TIGHT....NO HOLES!!
