From jazz-influenced classical pieces to world music rhythms and American popular song, pianist Monty Alexander seems to cover all his musical interests on Impressions in Blue. Backed by the talented rhythm section of bassist Hassan J.J. Wiggins Shakur and drummer Mark Taylor, Alexander tackles such epic compositions as Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" and Rodrigo's "En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor." He also takes on Ellington's "Creole Love Call" and Mercer's "I'm an Old Cowhand" with much success. It is his original tunes, however, that hold the most revelation, with "Eleuthra," a breezy, Latin-style number influenced by the Bahamas, bringing to mind the iconic '60s sound of Michel Legrand. ~ Matt Collar
