Jamaican born jazz pianist Monty Alexander brings a Caribbean influence and bright swinging feeling to a style influenced by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, and Frank Sinatra. His rhythmic, emotionally charged virtuosity is uniquely identifiable.
“For the most part, when I play music, I smell it and see colors. Every song has its own personality, its own soul, and if I can’t feel it, I can’t play it with feeling.”—Monty Alexander, 2010.
