A swinging tribute to Frank Sinatra... Titled after the New York City club Frank Sinatra frequented in the '60s - where Monty Alexander held his first steady gig in the Big Apple - Monty Alexander's new Concord CD Echoes of Jilly's is a swinging tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes from the pianist who truly knows the man and his music. "...the best tributes are...the most swingingly personal - which brings us to Monty Alexander. Sinatra is far from simply an abstract concept to the Jamaican-born pianist...Alexander enjoyed much of his most important exposure to American musicians and the New York scene while, in effect,working under Sinatra's imprimatur. In these 10 trio selections and three arresting solo statements, Alexander very adroitly uses the classic Sinatra performances as starting points...stressing The Chairman's swinging side." - Will Friedwald, author of Sinatra! The Song Is You (1997, Da Capo Press) FEATURING: Monty Alexander - piano John Patitucci - bass Troy Davis - drums
