In a career spanning fifty years, Monty Alexander—a great ambassador for Jamaican music—has played with the best of the best. From Dizzy Gillespie to Ernest Ranglin, many of the greats have called on his exceptional sense of improvisation. Here, at the head of a group of American and Jamaican musicians, he explores two facets of his musical heritage: the jazz of Harlem and the reggae of Kingston.
