He leads his own band, as well as playing with Jean Toussaint’s Young Lions, Jazz Jamaica and Nu Civilisation Orchestra.
His debut album, 'Kavuma' (Ubuntu Music), is a London-New York collective of exceptional artists who deliver soulful jazz. Their purpose is to get people to dance, by feeling the music’s heart and soul.
Alex Munk is an award winning guitarist, composer and bandleader living in London.

At this Jazz In The Round this month, Alex will be playing solo.
Inspired by Polish trumpeter and composer Tomasz Stanko, award winning trumpeter/flugelhorn player Charlotte Keeffe brings together her latest quartet of musicians from around the UK.
