Monty Alexander's Harlem Kingston Express Hit Miami on November 5!
(Published: October 31, 2016)

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

November 5 - One Night Only!
South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center

Still burning from a sensational summer concert at the Newport Jazz Festival and travels West, Monty Alexander comes to the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center with his Harlem Kingston Express for a special one-off only concert on Saturday, November 5! Not to be missed!

Monty moved to Miami from Jamaica in 1961! He's since traveled the globe with his rhythms and good vibes. 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. In the summer of 2012 Monty Alexander was awarded the prestigious German Jazz Trophy, "A Life for Jazz" and in November 2012 he received the Caribbean American Heritage Luminary Award from the Institute of Caribbean Studies in Washington, D.C.
