One of the most distinctive and exhilarating pianists in jazz, Jamaican-born New Yorker, Monty Alexander, plays in a uniquely super-charged style that at once bounces happily on the front edge of the beat while, at the same time, swings deeply and mightily. Whenever Monty is at the helm of a jazz trio, you can bet that the music will be Steaming Hot. Such is the case with these two Alexander gems, Full Steam Ahead (Disc One) and Steamin' (Disc Two). Two different trios are featured, with the undeniably galvanizing common element in both sets being Monty Alexander, whose combustible artistry ignites a sundry collection of tunes and transforms them into timeless jazz piano trio masterpieces. “Monty plays…with Tatum’s grace, Peterson’s richness, Garner’s force, Nat Cole’s wit.”—Fred Bouchard

Features performances by top jazz artists, such as MEL TORME, CARMEN McRAE, JOE WILLIAMS, THE MONTGOMERY BROTHERS, and more!
