South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall Presents MONTY ALEXANDER TRIO

Saturday, January 18 – 8:00 p.m.

Back by popular demand, the jazz master from New York by way of Kingston, Jamaica, Dr. Monty Alexander, returns with his empathetic, hand-in-glove trio. Monty’s playing has always retained a strong Caribbean influence, but with a significant bebop flavor and a bright swinging feeling. Influenced predominantly by Nat Cole, Frank Sinatra, Oscar Peterson, and Wynton Kelly, His roots are evident in all of his playing, both on piano and the related melodica, a keyboarded wind instrument.

His most recent recording, Wareika Hill RastaMonk Vibrations, released in October, 2019, is a collection of fresh reinterpretations of Monk gems, in which Alexander absolutely nails his hero’s idiosyncrasies by incorporating the island flavor that he feels in Monk’s music. The results are stunning.

Tickets are $40-$50; $10 for students under 25 with valid I.D.
