One of LA’s top call studio musicians and most versatile low brass artists, Alex discusses the many facets of his illustrious career including recording with Prince, Joe Cocker, Henry Mancini, John Williams, Terence Blanchard, to name a few; lending his trademark sound to the motion picture soundtracks of The Incredibles, Polar Express, National Treasure, Pirates of the Caribbean, Planet of the Apes, among many others; and performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Long Beach Symphony and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
