Monty Alexander

Genre: 
Date: 
Monday, June 25, 2012 - 6:00pm

At first blush, this Jamaican pianist seems an unlikely leader to honor a "king" and a "chairman of the board." But Monty Alexander discovered jazz at a Nat King Cole concert and played his first New York gig at Sinatra's old haunt called 'Jilly's'. Alexander offers fresh, inventive readings on "Sweet Lorraine," "Come Fly with Me" and more -- with vocalists James DeFrances and Allan Harris. Wendell Pierce hosts.
