Alphonse Lee Mouzon (November 21, 1948 – December 25, 2016) was an American jazz fusion drummer and the owner of Tenacious Records, a label that primarily released Mouzon's recordings. He was a composer, arranger, producer, and actor. He gained popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Mouzon, of African, French, and Blackfoot indian descent, was born on November 21, 1948, in Charleston, South Carolina.

Alphonse Mouzon's "Morning Sun" may be one of the first Smooth Jazz recordings - recorded in 1981 with pretty much the same band as on Mouzon's "By All Means" album may be one of the defining Smooth Jazz albums, just at the time when Smooth Jazz was born. Songs like "Lullaby for Little Alphonse", "Morning Sun" and "When Linda Smiles" are Smooth Jazz classics in their own right. But "Morning Sun" is not only a pure Smooth Jazz recording. It also has Disco and Funk tracks on it like "I'm glad you're here",.
