Monty Alexander & The Harlem Kingston Express Blows into The Windy City on November 24-27 at the Jazz Showcase!
(Published: November 18, 2016)

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

November 24-27
Jazz Showcase - Chicago


Monty Alexander elated the audience at this summer's Newport Jazz Festival with his Harlem Kingston Express and promises the same uplifting music for the soul on November 24-27 at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago! Windy City get ready!

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.
