    Monty Alexander
    Celebrating The New Album "D-Day"


    June 6, 2024, will mark the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings a.k.a D-Day. It’s also the day Monty Alexander turns 80. A highly symbolic historical concordance which the great musician naturally embraces for a unique tribute to this historical day with a recording that features wartime songs as well as original compositions. 

    Through his music, Monty seeks to highlight the importance of understanding and unity, reminding us of the lessons learned from the past. It's an album that commemorates history, celebrates a milestone, and promotes a message of peace. With bassist Luke Sellick and drummer Jason Brown, the album was recorded in Paris at Studio Sextan for the French label PeeWee!

    Line up is Monty Alexander (piano) with Luke Sellick (bass) and Jason Brown (drums).

    • Monty Alexander

      Over sixty years after he moved to the United States from Kingston, Jamaica, his hometown, Grammy© nominated pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. A perennial favorite at Jazz festivals and venues worldwide, his spirited conception is one informed by the timeless verities: endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition, as Alexander accurately states, “to build up the heat and kick up a storm.” In the course of any given performance, Alexander applies those aesthetics to a repertoire spanning a broad range of Jazz and Jamaican musical expressions—the American songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae. Documented on more than 75 recordings and cited as the fifth greatest jazz pianist ever in The Fifty Greatest Jazz Piano Players of All Time (Hal Leonard Publishing), the Jamaican government designated Alexander Commander in the Order of Distinction in 2000 and conferred on him the national honor of the Order of Jamaica in 2022 for "Sterling Contributions to the Promotions of Jamaican Music and the Jazz Genre Interpretations Globally". In 2018 the University of The West Indies bestowed him with an honorary doctorate (DLitt) in recognition of his accomplishments.
      June 6, 2024, will mark the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings. It’s also the day Monty Alexander turns 80.  The latest release, D-Day (2024, PeeWee!) commemorates these events with 12 tracks of war time standards and Monty's original compositions.
