Product Description:

Monty Alexander's Ivory & Steel: Monty Alexander (piano); Bernard Montgomery (electric bass); Marshall Wood (bass); Marvin "Smitty" Smith (drums); Othello Molineaux, Len "Boogsie" Sharpe (steel drums); Robert Thomas Jr. (hand drums).
Recorded at Penny Lane Studios, New York, New York in February & March 1988. Includes liner notes by Monty Alexander.
Pianist Monty Alexander's "Ivory And Steel" group combines together bop-based jazz with Jamaican calypsoes and West Indian rhythms. On this quite enjoyable set, Alexander utilizes both Othello and Len "Boogsie" Sharpe on steel drums, either Marshall Wood or Bernard Montgomery on bass, drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith and the hand drums of Robert Thomas Jr. Alexander contributed four of the rhythmic originals which are joined by some Jamaican folk songs (including "Sly Mangoose"), Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" and a couple of obscurities. The accessible results are often memorable. ~ Scott Yanow
