Monty Alexander

January 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Event Navigation

More than 50 years after moving to the U.S. from his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly and delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. One of the greatest of all living jazz pianists, his career is highlighted by more than 70 recordings as a leader as well as work with artists including Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, and Quincy Jones.  With a repertoire spanning a broad range of jazz and Jamaican musical expression—the American songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae—Alexander takes the stage with a professed goal “to build up the heat and kick up a storm.” Learn more at www.montyalexander.com.
