Saxophonist | Producer | Writer | Bandleader
Jazz and Funk saxophonist Matthew Alec delivers sheer belief with a strong, focused, and clear sound. His eclectic style, inspired by musicians such as Michael Brecker, Joshua Redman, and John Mayer, combines a multitude of idioms including contemporary R & B, hard bop, free jazz, and rock. Although a predominantly passionate and soulful musician, he employs a decidedly methodical approach as a soloist and a writer, putting a great deal of thought into every note that comes through his horn.
"Cleveland, OH jazz-fusion group Matthew Alec and The Soul Electric have got a rhythmic step in the down and dirty direction with some legit golden era funk that grabs the grooves of Tower of Power and snazzy sensibilities of The Greyboy Allstars"
