Alejandro Urzagaste was born in Iowa and raised in the midwest. His affinity for music began cultivation in high school by playing in bands and exposure to the music of Thelonious Monk, Count Basie and Joe Pass. He played in the Jazz Workshop at St. Charles high school under the direction of Jeff Childs and Jim Kull.

Alejandro relocated to Minneapolis with the defunct rock act Oxpecker. After briefly forming the No Filter Quartet and touring with 12Rods he attended Northern Illinois University as part of Fareed Haque's guitar studio.

Chicago became the destination to hear the Bobby Broom Trio and Ron Perrillo along with the Tuesday night jam at the New Apartment Lounge hosted by tenor giant Von Freeman.

Inspired, he moved to Chicago in 2000 to learn from the masters. Since, he has performed at the Green Mill, the Chicago Jazz Festival, Andy's Jazz Club, Pete Miller's Steakhouse and the Jazz Showcase as a leader and a sideman for Taku Akiyama, Marco Polo, Marc Pompe, Juli Wood and the Deep Blue Organ Trio. He has performed with Jodie Christian, Von Freeman, Bobby Broom, Ron Blake, Kobie Watkins, Maurice Brown, Ron Perrillo, Eric Schneider, Pat Mallinger, Marquis Hill, Juli Wood, Dennis Carroll and Shara Maxwell.

In 2012 he released his debut recording "Urban Intervals." The recording features the all-star bassist Dennis Carroll, George Fludas and piano legend Jodie Christian.

In 2018 Alejandro has released his second recording, his first with the group Flow.

​Flow is a guitar, piano led jazz group featuring Bill Carrothers with the all star rhythm section of Dennis Carroll and George Fludas.

Celebrating their first release 'Subject to Change' with original compositions from Alejandro Urzagaste and Bill Carrothers, Flow will be performing regionally in the Midwest to support the release of "Subject to Change" starting in Minneapolis. They will be at the 40th Chicago Jazz Festival Sunday September 2nd.
