Kristian Alexandrov

“Whatever it is, it seems to come to the musical whizkid with ease. On his debut solo recording – appropriately titled Funked Up Jazz – Alexandrov shadow boxes with Herbie Hancock, Prince and Miles Davis, making original music that does justice to the whole misunderstood genre of (shh…don’t say it) fusion.”
Jordan Kawchuk, Calgary FFWD
