Monty Alexander

1944 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

For over 60 years, pianist Monty Alexander has forged a style from two musical legacies: his native Jamaica, birthplace of reggae, and his adopted home, the U.S., cradle of jazz. No surprise, then, that Alexander has left his mark on both forms, a pianist known for effervescent creativity and an impressive career including over 70 recordings as a bandleader, concerts all over the world and collaborations with renowned musicians.
