In a career spanning over five decades, pianist Monty Alexander has built a reputation for exploring and bridging the worlds of American jazz, popular song, and the music of his native Jamaica, finding in each a sincere spirit of musical expression. He has performed and recorded with a wide array of distinguished artists such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, and Quincy Jones, and as a leader, Monty has recorded over 70 albums.

Harlem-Kingston Express is a musical depiction of Alexander's journey, from the sounds and rhythms of his native Kingston, Jamaica, to the classic jazz tradition of New York's Harlem - an exciting and uplifting interweaving between his heritage and his adopted home of America.
