    As he continues his emergence as a dynamic new independent artist in the contemporary jazz world, keyboardist and composer Al DeGregoris still remembers the encouraging words he parents would offer frequently as he was growing up in Long Island: “Be patient. Work hard. Everything will come, All In Good Time.” That last phrase is the perfect title of DeGregoris’ new album, the latest step in the fulfillment of his musical dreams, which finds him vibing with some of contemporary jazz’s top hit making artists.

Since then, the comments about looking like Sonny Bono have never ended. Early on in his life, he has always had an entertaining personality and has been involved in theater and entertainment.
    In 1969, he cultivated his talent as a magician and titled his magic act: "The World Of Magic With Mysto."
    In 1982, he became a minister and traveled throughout the country preaching the Gospel in many churches until 2002.
    In 1997, he moved his family to Washington state and settled in the Seattle area.
    In 2004, he was inspired to fulfill his destiny as an entertainer and pursue a new quest as a tribute artist to Sonny Bono.

Together, they sang the song "I Got You, Babe" and moved the audience to a standing ovation!
    Since this time, he has made many personal appearances and performed as Sonny Bono, and has become a recognized and loved tribute artist.

      Contemporary jazz keyboard player Alex Bugnon, nephew of trumpeter Donald Byrd, grew up going to the Montreux Jazz Festival in his hometown in Switzerland. He attended the Paris Conservatory of Music for two years, then moved to the U.S. and went to the Berklee School of Music, meanwhile performing as an accompanist to gospel groups. He spent four years working as a session musician in New York, backing urban and jazz performers such as Patti Austin, Freddie Jackson, James Ingram, and Keith Sweat. Signed to Orpheus Records, he released his debut album, Love Season, in 1989. It reached the pop charts and the Top 40 of the R&B charts, as did its follow-up, 1990's Head Over Heels. Subsequent releases -- 107 Degrees in the Shade (1991), This Time Around (1993), and Tales From the Bright Side (1995), the last on RCA Records -- all placed in the R&B charts. After five years away from recording under his own name, Bugnon signed to the jazz division of Narada Records, which marketed him as a jazz artist, and his sixth album, Alex Bugnon...As Promised, reached the contemporary jazz charts. He followed in 2001 with Soul Purpose.
