Friday Musical Interlude: Monty Alexander

June 13th, 2014 at 11:13 am

Q: What do you call a Kingston, Jamaica born pianist with Oscar-Peterson chops who can swing with the best of them yet him can hit de Reggae groove just as comfortably?

A: Monty Alexander.  Here he is on a funky little trio number and here’s some Jammin.’

Monty’s been touring, I’m told, with both a Reggae and a jazz rhythm section set up on the stage, with him at the keyboard in the middle, seamlessly moving between them.  I hear it’s an awesome show and hope to check it out if he comes my way.
