"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)
"Monty Alexander got a standing ovation before he’d even played a note."
(Democrat and Cronicle, Rochester NY)
"The swinging trio had the whole audience tapping their feet and swaying to the soulful jazz music... sending the entire
audience to a happy place of love and joy."
(Delaware County News Network)
"If your foot's not tapping chances are you might be dead."
(The Globe and Mail-London, UK)
HARLEM KINGSTON EXPRESS
"An outrageously good time."
(The Wall Street Journal)
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.
(The New York Times)
