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). Monty Alexander's Ivory and Steel combines soulful, hard-bopping jazz with Jamaican calypsos and West Indian grooves to forge a highly original two-CD set titled Island Grooves. Monty Alexander achieves his objective by creating a mood that is basically West Indian and by providing a musical context that leaves lots of room for the musicians to solo. With Othello Molineaux and Len "Boogsie" Sharpe on steel drums, Marshall Wood on bass, Bernard Montgomery on electric bass, Robert Thomas Jr. on hand drums, and Marvin "Smitty" Smith on drums, Alexander surpasses his previous 1980 achievement by including five original compositions.
