Monty Alexander Compilation on Double LP!
All the Classics & Highlights of His Time at the Black Forest Label on One Album!

The Best of the MPS Years presents you all the classics and highlights of Monty Alexander's time at the Black Forest label on one album.

Monty Alexander has been one of the most popular pianists in jazz for over 50 years. Early on, his prodigious technique and wide-ranging style garnered comparisons with the great Oscar Peterson. But there has always been another side to Alexander's playing. Usually jazz grabs the upper hand, but on occasion he digs deep into his Jamaican roots.

The 1974 Here Comes the Sun recording signals the beginning of Jamaican pianist Monty Alexander's fruitful relationship with MPS, lasting over a decade and encompassing some dozen albums.
