"Monty Alexander is one of the giants of jazz piano. I have a majority of his releases, on CD as well as vinyl. PLEASE AVOID THIS IMPORT " THE WAY IT IS ". The recording is horrendous, EQ is all wrong, you can't hear drummer Frank Gant, Bob Maize"s bass is too loud in the mix, the tinny, out of tune piano sucks and Monty is just trying to get through the gig! Dont be fooled by the hip cover of Monty strokin' it. This set is not like his great MPS live recordings. Buy any of his legit recordings on major labels, and you will be amazed. Leave this one alone. And yea, I've heard a lot of Monty live, on one occasion (5 nights, 15 sets, back in the day). Long live "Alexander The Great!""
