A Jamaican jazz jam in honour of Monty Alexander's 80th birthday.

Grammy Award nominated pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. A perennial favorite at jazz festivals and venues worldwide, and at the Montreux Jazz Festival where he has appeared 23 times since 1976, his spirited conception is informed by endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition.

Juno Award nominee Jay Douglas has performed at various festivals worldwide, including Rastafest Festival in Toronto and the 4 Seasons Reggae Cruise in Atlanta, Georgia. He has worked with international reggae stars such as Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Marcia Griffiths, Luciano, Ken Boothe, Leroy Sibbles, Fab5 Band, General Tree, Jesse “Dub Matix” King, Ziggy Marley, Lyn Tait, and the great Ernest Ranglin.
