Hi. I'm Alex Foster. I've been a member of the NBC Saturday Night Live band for decades and have played saxaphone in live situations and on records with a wide number of artists during this time including many of the guest artists on the show. I've know Bruce Whitcomb since the mid '1970s. We both moved to New York around the same time. When I was getting ready to record my first album, "Beginnings Goodbye", I heard that Bruce had put his own studio together. I knew Bruce played a few instruments well, and I was confident that we could work well together. It was a great experience, and since we shared many of our favorite instrumentalists in common, Bruce came up with parts and styles that suited just what I was looking for. A great artist, bassist Jaco Pastorius, suddenly died during the making of this record. I had been playing in Jaco's band during that time, so I set up a benefit concert to help remember Jaco's genius and to help out his family financially. I wanted Bruce to play in this concert because he had been so strongly influenced by Jaco's style, and he was the right choice to use in playing Jaco's music in a small group setting. People from all over the world attended this sad but needed event. We became closer as friends during this time, and as I made arrangements for events in my solo career, I was happy to have Bruce along for the ride. I took him to Zurich, Switzerland to play in my group on a TV show called Jazz In which was an honor. It was three days of hard work, and a wonderful experience. After that, we played several gigs in and around New York together and have remained friends over many years. I highly recommend anyone interested in having their music put into recorded form that they use Bruce's know-how in that process. The parts he comes up with are always great, and he can get very good results with the instruments and equipment he uses. Other than that, he is extremely cost-effictive in what he charges and truly dedicated to music first and foremost. If you believe in your music, he will definitely help to turn it into a great recorded product in his own studio.
