CRITICS SAY...

"Anyone who attended the concert could probably rave about it for another week or two. It was that good."

(G. MacTaggart-Buffalo News 1/29/18)

What makes his current band his greatest is that rather than dividing up these two halves of his musical brain, now he constantly brings them together, performing on stage with essentially two ensembles simultaneously:a jazz trio gradually joined by a Jamaican-style rhythm section.

(Will Friedwald 1/3/18)

SOLO

"Monty Alexander got a standing ovation before he’d even played a note."

(Democrat and Cronicle, Rochester NY)

With his Harlem-Kingston Express, he brings together musicians versed in both reggae and straight-ahead jazz, creating a brew that’s danceable and lilting and often ramps up from hypnotic to electrifying.
