Michael Fremer's 100 Recommended All-Analog LP Reissues Worth Owning - Rated 28/100!
Montreux Alexander, performing live at the famed festival by Lake Geneva. This 1976 album captures the time in Alexander's young career when he began to be compared to musical giants such as Oscar Peterson.
Alexander's playing combines proficiency with the feel of the Caribbean and a touch of gospel.
Pianist Monty Alexander did some of his finest recordings for the MPS label. This live trio set with bassist John Clayton and drummer Jeff Hamilton... features Alexander playing his usual repertoire of the period with blues, standards ('Satin Doll,' 'Work Song' and 'Battle Hymn of the Republic') and a version of 'Feelings' that uplifts the song a bit... His soulful approach to the generally familiar melodies makes them sound fresh and swinging.
