Additional Information

In a career spanning five decades, virtuoso swinging pianist Monty Alexander has built a reputation exploring and bridging the worlds of American jazz, popular song, and the music of his native Jamaica, finding in each a sincere spirit of musical expression. In the process, he has performed and recorded with artists from every corner of the musical universe and entertainment world: Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry, Quincy Jones, Bobby McFerrin, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. “Monty Alexander has been bringing jazz back to reggae music (and vice versa) for decades,” wrote Rick Anderson at AllMusic.com. “Harlem–Kingston Express finds him…continuing to explore the connections between traditional reggae and straight–ahead jazz while also forging new ones.”
