New York, New York.  “Love Notes,” a brand-new album of eleven tracks with vocals and piano by Monty Alexander, is set for release August 19th, 2022.  The collection represents the culmination of Monty’s decades’ long desire to record a vocal album after releasing 75 piano projects over the course of his illustrious, critically-acclaimed career.  Said Monty, “My desire was emboldened ever since one of our great Jazz vocalists, Carmen McRae, heard me sing a tune at the end of a concert and told me “Don’t stop singing!”, admonishing me like a loving aunt would. That was back in the 1970’s so it took me fifty years, and a century later, but I am glad to finally introduce Monty the vocalist, and this collection of love songs.”
