Monty Alexander


“Monty Alexander is one of the most eclectic pianists you’ll ever hear. He has an irrepressible knack for snatching Caribbean and Latin, European classical, bebop and blues elements and weaving them seamlessly into a tune” (St. Paul Pioneer Press).

Acclaimed the world over for his seemingly extraterrestrial technique and sublime, heartfelt swing, Jamaican jazz piano virtuoso Monty Alexander “delights audiences everywhere” (London Evening Standard).

In a career spanning five decades, pianist Monty Alexander has built a reputation exploring and bridging the worlds of American jazz, popular song, and the music of his native Jamaica, finding in each a sincere spirit of musical expression. In the process, he has performed and recorded with artists from every corner of the musical universe and entertainment world: Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry, Quincy Jones, Ernest Ranglin, Barbara Hendricks, Bill Cosby, Bobby McFerrin, Sly Dunbar, and Robbie Shakespeare, among others.
