How was your experience?
I love the intimate atmostphere at the Birdland; there is not a bad seat in the house. Food is good too! Monty Alexander, as usual was fabulous! He performed a lot of jazz standards, including quite a few Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra hits. He didn't perform any of the usual Bob Marley songs, but he did a couple of Jamaican folk songs (e.g. Day-O and Carry Mi Ackee Go A Linstead Market) that were quite fun! In addition the drummer and the bassist, he had a hand percussionist who was fabulous, as well as a singer that had a velvetty-smooth voice. We had a truly fantastic evening.
