Alexander L. J. Tóth is an eminent, award-winning self-taught Musician, Artist and Producer, attaining critical acclaim as a Bassist on an International scale.
Alexander hales from Toronto, Canada, and is of Hungarian and Trinidadian descent. His interest in music originated within a constantly musical household, through hearing his father play the Bass Guitar - which ultimately inspired him to pick up the instrument himself. Being immersed in sounds of Motown, R&B and Jazz, as well as music from his roots such as Soca/Calypso and traditional Hungarian music has proven to be a key influence on Alexander’s musical identity.
Alexander is a graduate of Berklee College of Music, and during his time in Boston he has performed with highly regarded artists such as Wayne Shorter, Danilo Perez, Terri Lyne Carrington, Valerie Simpson, Tia Fuller, Patrice Rushen, Steve Wilson, Gregoire Maret, Donald Harrison, Greg Osby, Antonio Sanchez, Sean Jones, Chris Potter, Dawaun Parker, Bill Pierce, Jaques Schwartz-Bart, Warren Wolf, Terence Blanchard, and Billy Kilson among many others. Alexander currently holds the Bass chair in Ralph Peterson’s Fo’tet, the Ron Savage Trio, the Darren Barrett Quintet, and Felix Peikli’s Royal Flush Quintet – who’s debut album features multi-Grammy award winning bassist, Marcus Miller and producer/trumpeter Lee Hogans. Tóth has also recorded on notable albums such as Myron Walden’s “Momentum Live: Our Sound,” Darren Barrett’s “Live and Direct” and Ralph Peterson’s “The Duality Perspective”, which was selected in the ballot for Grammy Award Nominations, and was featured in All About Jazz, New York Times, WGBH, Wall Street Journal and Downbeat Magazine.
Over the years, Alexander has had the opportunity to tour and perform at major music festivals throughout America, Canada, Europe and Africa while gaining recognition through several television and radio outlets. Currently, Tóth resides in the USA and continues to perform, tour and record with various prominent Artists on a global scale, as well as co-leading the "TóthBrothers" with his younger brother. As Alexander says, “I strive to inspire and be inspired by anyone I cross paths with, while delivering the highest quality of music - whether it be for my audiences or my colleagues.”
