Born in Paris, France, Alex Terrier discovered the magic of music by playing classical piano pieces. The night he heard live Jazz for the first time, Alex Terrier decided to devote his life to music and jazz would be the path to follow. Parker, Miles and Coltrane would be his first guides to jazz as the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Schoenberg and Bartok would be his source of study for composition. With his saxophone, Alex traveled Europe before flying to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. He is now living in New York and has released nine albums. His album “Stop Requested” (Aphrodite Records) features legendary George Garzone who was once Alex’s teacher.
 His second album “Roundtrip” features his New York Quartet.
