Presented by Diablo Regional Arts Association
August 10, 2019

A dynamic, technically brilliant, Jamaican-born jazz pianist in the mold of Oscar Peterson who often explores his Caribbean roots, thrilled the Lesher audiences with his trio in 2017. With this band, Alexander spontaneously orchestrates, switching off from straight-ahead to two worlds meet. He also sings and plays the melodica. "There's always some kind of jet taking off when I transfer the music to one rhythm or the other. Whether it's 4/4 straight-ahead acoustic or a rhythm from Jamaica, it's cathartic. It's a bring-people-together thing, and the musicians enjoy each other. You can see the camaraderie... It never gets old." Over 70 recordings as leader. Harlem Kingston Express featuring Hassan Shakur, acoustic bass, Obed Calvaire, drums, Andy Bassford, guitar, Joshua Thomas, electric bass, Karl Wright, percussion/drums.

Running Time: approx. 75 minutes, with no intermission
