Legendary Grammy-nominated piano master and Jamaica’s Commander Of Distinction, Monty Alexander, along with the magnificent Harlem Kingston Express (HKE) band, are set to lead fans across a musical bridge of Jamaican ‘riddims’ and American classical jazz in New York City this weekend.

Inspired by the amazing triple gold medal wins in Rio of Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt and on the heels of the conclusion of the Summer Games of the 31st Olympiad, Alexander and the HKE will host a celebration of both musical genres at the popular Blue Note Jazz Club at 131 W. 3rd Street in Manhattan, NY on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th from 8 and 10:30 p.m., respectively, each night.

The two-night, four concert series is sure to get fans of Alexander’s blend of infectious jazz rhythms up and on their feet. Tickets for this Jamaican musical celebration in the Big Apple are $30 per person for the bar and $45 per person for a table booking.
