Monty Alexander

Start Time: 7.30pm

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Nearly 60 years after he moved to the United States from Jamaica, Grammy-nominated legendary pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic.

He tours the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message.

His spirited conception is one informed by the timeless verities: endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition, as Alexander accurately states, “to build up the heat and kick up a storm”. 

In the course of any given performance, Alexander applies those aesthetics to a repertoire spanning a broad range of jazz and Jamaican musical expressions - the American songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae. 

Monty Alexander - Piano 

JJ Shakur - Bass 

Jason Brown - Drums
