Concord Picante Records
Scott Yanow: This well-rounded set features Monty Alexander exploring his West Indian birthplace and heritage by utilizing the steel drum of Othello Molineaux and performing both straight-ahead jazz and calypsos. The music is often quite joyous and even the more familiar material (such as "Work Song," "Stella By Starlight" and a medley of "Impressions" and "So What") sounds fresh. Whether it be the Milt Jackson blues "S.K.J." or the Crusaders' hit "Street Life," this is a very successful outing that is quite enjoyable.
