Editorial Reviews

Review

Monty Alexander presented his refined concept of groove with
the recent Harlem-Kingston Express project, blending a jazz trio
and a steaming reggae unit, weaving back and forth between the
idioms with orchestral finesse. --DownBeat

Alexander himself is in excellent form, carefully walking the
tightrope that bridges jazz improvisation and the rhythmic riffs of
reggae. --All About Jazz

Product Description

54th Annual Grammy Awards Finalist as Best Reggae Album. The rarefied and infectiously joyous mood that
pervaded Dizzy s Club during Monty Alexander s sold-out run at Jazz at
Lincoln Center in July 2010 is brilliantly captured in on this reggae-jazz
fusion disc. Harlem Kingston Express finds the Jamaican jazz legend in
rare form rockin it simultaneously with his jazz quartet and a powerhouse
reggae posse in New York City with additional tracks from dates in Jamaica
and Europe. A live and powerful follow up to Stir It Up, Alexanders
lauded Bob Marley Tribute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jazz with a subtle reggae flavor April 10, 2012

This album is great - I'd never heard of Monty Alexander until I heard him on NPR, and the album I subsequently order didn't disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars All the energy of the live performance December 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Excellent fusion of jazz and reggae. Top shelf players cookin deep in some nasty grooves. Reggae drummers need this album, especially track three.

3.0 out of 5 stars Try Monte Alexander's Bob Marley titles instead July 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, I'm a serious reggae fan. I've even produced an album in Kingston.
Monte's play Bob Marley album is classic.
Here, on Harlem Express I'm kinda getting lost.
