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
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.
