“’Nuff said,” is right.  When jazz fans hear the names Monty Alexander, John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton in conjunction, they know they’ll be treated great music, played with inspiration, joy and absolutely amazing technical chops.  

Monty (piano), John (bass) and Jeff (drums) have performed together off and on for almost 40 years.

In their most recent reunion tour they played at Jazz Alley, and made time to come into our studios to treat us to a mini-concert.

Hosted by Abe Beeson, the session features three terrific performances and topics of conversation that include jazz education, John and Jeff’s experience performing with Paul McCartney and Monty’s reminiscence of working with Frank Sinatra.
