Hailing from Rockport, Massachusetts, Alek Razdan began playing the clarinet at the age of 6, picking up the tenor saxophone when he was 12 in order to play in his middle school jazz band. Since then, Alek has recorded three self-produced albums which received favorable reviews and praise from the likes of DownBeat, Saxophone Journal, David Robinson (The Cars), and Whoopi Goldberg. The title track of his album TWO TIMIN' was the Grammy® U winner of the Indaba Music Masters Critique in 2011. Alek currently holds the baritone and tenor sax chair in five-time Grammy-nominated® group Roomful of Blues, and wrote the closing track on the band's recently released album IN A ROOMFUL OF BLUES, now available on Alligator Records. He also regularly performs with The American Symphony of Soul, a 10-piece funk and soul band based out of Boston, Massachusetts and The A-Train Orchestra, a blues and jazz group also featuring his father Rikki Razdan on saxophone.
