about alain bradette

Saxophonist, Alain Bradette, was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. He studied music at the University Of Montreal. An accomplished performer, composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, he has performed in Canada, Europe and the U.S. In 2004 two of Alainís compositions were recognized by the prestigious Great American Song Contest: Montreal-Marseille took first place honors and A Birdís Dream ranked second in the top five Outstanding Compositions.

Alain is a full-time band member for Cirque Du Soleilís La Nouba, a permanent show located at Downtown Disney, Florida. He has been both a sideman and a featured musician on several recordings and produced singer-songwriter, Serina Jungís second album, Sparrows . Other musical collaborations include performances with The International Montreal Jazz Festival Orchestra with guest musicians Adam Makowicz and George Mraz, the Vic Vogel Big Band, Tiger Okoshi at a Timucua Art Foundation event, and Quebecís star, Pierre Flynn.

While his busy schedule keeps him involved in other peopleís music, Alain still composes for and performs with his group. Late in 2004, he pulled from his extensive collection of compositions to release his independent debut album in February 2005. State of Mind is a collection of eight original pieces and a creative arrangement of My Secret Love. Even before the CD reached the publicís ears,  Morning Rain, track #7, was selected for use in a Canadian film (Hunt For Justice: The Louise Arbour Story) which is due for completion in 2006.

Alainís musical influences are many and range from jazz music to pop and classical, however, John Coltrane, Michael Brecker, and Jan Garbarek are the saxophonists who have most influenced his evolution up to now. He has a passion for creative outlet, as evidenced by his extensive stylistic taste and ventures, and his natural ability for dynamic performance and improvisation both live and in the studio.
