Monty Alexander Trio

Presented by Scullers Jazz Club at Scullers Jazz Club

Fifty-five years after he moved to the United States from his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. His spirited conception is one informed by the timeless verities: endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition, as Alexander accurately states, "to build up the heat and kick up a storm." In the course of any given performance, Alexander applies those aesthetics to repertoire spanning a broad range of jazz and Jamaican musical expression — the American Songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae.

"As a consummate entertainer with genuine international pedigree, he is a man who never forgets his roots, fusing the creative essence of his native land with the jazz legacy of past collaborators like Gillespie, Rollins, and Sinatra. Monty Alexander really is a musician who has it all – and he was fully appreciated with a rapturous standing ovation." – Variety
