Veteran pianist Monty Alexander left Jamaica and came to the United States at age 17. This recording for Venus Records celebrates his 50 years in the land of jazz. Known for his straight ahead sensibilities and sometimes considered a successor of Oscar Peterson, his long career has widened his musical spectrum and brought maturity to his playing. For this recording, Monty is accompanied by bassist Hassan Shakur and drummer Willie Jones III on original songs like "Can't You See", "Got To Go" and "Sweet Lady", as well as popular tunes such as "Come Fly With Me", "I've Never Been In Love Before", You Call It Madness" and "We've Only Just Begun", plus the title song.
