Monty Alexander in Tokyo [Bonus Tracks]

Monty Alexander

(CD - Fantasy #10982)

Review by Scott Yanow

A straightforward outing with his trio (which also includes bassist Andy Simpkins and drummer Frank Gant), this excellent studio set features pianist Monty Alexander displaying his bop chops and creativity in a straight-ahead setting. Highlights include "Broadway," Oscar Pettiford's "Tricotism," and "Never Let Me Go."
