What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? ALEX: I had a bit of a different upbringing. My first bit of luck was being adopted from Romania when I was 6 weeks old. I came to Canada and then started being taken to jazz clubs when I was two years old. And I grew up getting to see jazz greats like Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Cleo Laine, Diana Krall…the list goes on. So that was my initial jump into music. Some people went to school to learn; I went to the jazz clubs.
