Editorial Reviews

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.

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

This album grabbed my attention from the get-go when driving back from work. It is energetic and this album is diverse so as to keep your interest. Highly Recommended for Jazz enthusiasts ranging from the novice to the aficionado.

Excellent fusion of jazz and reggae. Top shelf players cookin deep in some nasty grooves. Reggae drummers need this album, especially track three.

I think the title of this album reveals the intent, which was to link American music culture with the music from his roots.

Marley on a swanky, warm jazz high. Superb stuff by Monty Alexander and his tight band: most enjoyable. Highly recommended!

I was listening to this over and over this past weekend. Just wonderful Very meditating, very enjoyable and very lively. Monty knows how to make music fun. I enjoy all the songs on this one and have put this on my road trip play list. Not as good as Monty live, but the next best thing. I would recommend this. Fusing jazz and reggae, Monty brings his roots to play and does so well.
