Biography

Monty Alexander is a talented pianist whose work spans multiple genres and influences - from jazz (under the influence of Wynton Kelly), to his caribbean roots. During his 50 years long career, he recorded extensively both as a sideman and as a leader, notably for MPS. Newcomers may want to try the album Caribbean Circle for a good overview of his versatile talents.
