Monty Alexander at Bailey Hall Jan 20
DESCRIPTION

Jan 20 at 7:45: South Florida JAZZ, South Florida's premier jazz organization, presents the Monty Alexander Trio. Born in Kingston, Jamaica on D-Day, Monty Alexander is a self-taught pianist with prodigious skills that were evident from age four. Nominated for a Grammy in 2011 for his CD "Harlem-Kingston Express LIVE" and for a 2014 Soul Train Award for "Harlem-Kingston Express 2: The River Rolls On," his playing retains a strong Caribbean influence, but with a significant bebop flavor and bright swinging feeling. Influenced by Nat Cole, Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, and Wynton Kelly, Alexander is known for his surprise musical twists and the ability to build dramatic suspense. His roots are evident in all of his playing, both on piano and melodica.

Artistic Personnel

Monty Alexander - piano and melodica
J.J. Shakur - double bass
Jason Brown - drums

Tickets are $35-$45 ($10 for students) at southfloridajazz.org or 954-201-6884. Bailey Hall is on the Broward College campus at 3501 Davie Road, Davie FL 33314.
