Monty Alexander Trio

With his dedicated piano playing, Kingston-born pianist Monty Alexander and his trio elegantly weave together musical threads from Jamaica with blues, bebop and a dash of Frank Sinatra.

The playing of pianist Monty Alexander, who grew up in Jamaica, combines Caribbean influences with hints of the major jazz icons. Already at the age of fifteen, he had begun to establish himself as a pianist at clubs in his hometown of Kingston. His family later moved to Miami, but after a short period there, Monty moved to New York where he played at the jazz club Jilly’s. Legends like Sammy Davis Jr., Count Basie and Miles Davis played there, memories that left eternal marks on Monty Alexander.

Above all, Jilly’s nightclub in Manhattan was frequented by Frank Sinatra, who took Monty Alexander under his wing and supported him in his career. At this concert, we also hear a handful of unforgettable Sinatra hits, all with Monty Alexander’s deeply personal touch.
