“I love Jamaica. I love America. I love them both together more than each one separately. I inhabit the rhythmic aspect of both things. I can’t explain why. I do it naturally and joyfully. I am confident and proud and privileged to say that I come from a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic thing. The slogan of Jamaica is like America’s ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ ‘out of many, one people.’”—Monty Alexander, 2014
Monty Alexander with Luke Sellick (bass) and Jason Brown (drums)
Considered among the greatest jazz pianists ever, Monty Alexander has recorded over 75 albums and played countless sold-out shows in his six-plus decade career.
Dynamic, sophisticated and innovative, he’s a master of swing, bop, the American songbook, Caribbean music and everything in between, brilliantly merging them into something unique and unforgettable. His acclaimed new album, The Montreux Years, left one reviewer “wondering if Monty simply had more fingers than the average pianist.”
