Kenneth Pyron What a groove! What playing! Incredible passion and joy in the playing. This is the album to work to, enjoy an afternoon to, or simply listen with friends to. I've been listening to Monty since 1977 and are simply astonished at his ability and complete joy in playing. Favorite track: No Woman, No Cry.

about

Monty Alexander celebrated his 50th year of phenomenal musicianship by releasing two outstanding recordings: the now Grammy® nominated Harlem-Kingston Express Live! and Uplift (via Jazz Legacy Productions). Co-Produced by Jana Herzen, Katherine Miller, and Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola's Todd Barkan (who introduced Motéma and Monty to each other), the Best Reggae Album nomination is truly a fantastic accomplishment in what has been a hugely successful year for the pianist. Upon its release, Harlem-Kingston Express Live! dominated the airwaves, reaching #1 on both Jazzweek's Jazz and World radio charts, while press buzzed over the album's Jamaican influences, which include elements of mento, ska as well as R&B.

Jazziz heralded the project a "joyous recording," and NY Daily News labeled it a "honeymoon of musical bliss."
