You will notice the names and the songs readily. In typical eclectic Alexander fashion he covers everything from Marvin Gaye’s "Sexual Healing" to Bobby Darin’s "Mack The Knife." The CD closes out most fittingly with the tradition and history of "Battle Hymn of the Republic (Glory Hallelujah)." The musical styles covered are as diverse as the song selection. Monty and his marvelous piano cover the range of jazz, blues, and pop, all steeped in his Jamaican tradition and heritage.
This man continually impresses with his fresh innovations of standard tunes, including plenty of his own original compositions. I have no qualms saying his is one of the very best piano players in jazz today.
