Monty Alexander Harlem-Kingston Express - Detroit Jazz Festival - September 7
(Published: September 01, 2015)

-THE LEGENDARY JAMAICAN PIANO MASTER-
MONTY ALEXANDER
HARLEM-KINGSTON EXPRESS

2015 DETROIT JAZZ FESTIVAL

MONTY ALEXANDER APPEARS
SEPTEMBER 7th

On the heals of his recently sold-out European tour, Monty Alexander brings his Harlem-Kingston Express roaring into the Motor City for the 2015 Detroit Jazz Festival on September 7th! One of the best shows you'll ever see 'live' - this funky band will get the crowd up and rockin'!

The 36th Annual Detroit Jazz Festival Labor Day Weekend is the world's largest free jazz festival! Alexander's two Motema Music Harlem-Kingston Express releases got rave reviews from the press. The New York Times described him as "an effervescent pianist and one of Jamaica's proudest musical exports." The Wall Street Journal has by turns called him "maybe the first-and certainly the most successful-musician to combine Jamaican music with North American jazz" and said that, "Alexander's blend of jazz and reggae makes for an outrageously good time."

Monty has recorded more than 75 albums as a leader and was awarded the title of Commander of Distinction by the Jamaican government in the year 2000.
