The Jamaican-born veteran jazz pianist Monty Alexander continues the series of tributes to the music of Bob Marley he began with 1999's STIR IT UP on this reggae-oriented set recorded at Marley's Tuff Gong studios. He's joined by an all-star cast, including the singer Luciano and the trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, on a set that includes the bubbling, upbeat "Africa Unite," a subtly swinging "Crazy Baldheads," and the funky, mento-influenced "Three Little Birds."
