Official Site : MOUZON musical associations read like a veritable Who’s Who of Modern Jazz and Pop Music. His talents cover a broad range of musical disciplines and philosophies. He was the rhythmic foundation for the far reaching musical explorations of pianist McCoy Tynerr.

@allmusic : Additionally, Mouzon has returned sporadically to his other love, acting, including a part alongside Tom Hanks in the 1996 film, That Thing You Do!, and also serves as chairman/CEO for his own record label, Tenacious Records. Mouzon continues to issue albums, and also tours Europe and the U.S. on a regular basis — leading his own trio, quartet, or quintet.

@last.fm : Alphonse Mouzon first came to the public eye in the 60s working with McCoy Tynerr. He was later a founding member of Weather Report, then went on to a solo career, specializing during the 70s in funky jazz fusion. He has also appeared on recordings and live with such diverse artists as Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana, Patrick Moraz, Tommy Bolin and Chubby Checker as well as jazz notables like Gil Evans, Roy Ayers, George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Stanley Clarke and dozens of others. He has also recorded extensively with European jazz players: Klaus Doldinger’s Passport, Joachim Kühn, and Jasper Van’t Hof.
