Monty Alexander’s Junkanoo Swing

Monty Alexander’s Junkanoo Swing

Jazz at Lincoln Center

With pianist Monty Alexander, bassist Hassan Shakur, drummer Obed Calvaire, electric bassist Joshua Thomas, guitarist Andy Bassford, drummer/percussionist Karl Wright, and special guests to be announced

In a career spanning five decades, pianist Monty Alexander has built a reputation by exploring and bridging the worlds of American jazz, popular song, and the music of his native Jamaica. In the process, he has performed and recorded with artists from every corner of the musical universe and entertainment world, including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry, Quincy Jones, Ernest Ranglin, Barbara Hendricks, Bobby McFerrin, Sly Dunbar, and Robbie Shakespeare. Combining classic, swinging jazz with the rhythms and vibrations of Jamaica, Alexander always makes good on his promise to “get everybody moving below the waist.”
