Monty Alexander

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

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.
