Monty Alexander -- A Jazz Pianist's take on Bob Marley

Driving to work, I scanned past a local Jazz station and was completely caught off guard by the sounds of Bob Marley!  Almost a month later, ever since I discovered the full album -- Jamaican-native, Monty Alexander's 1999 release of Stir It Up: The Music of Bob Marley -- I can't stop listening. I included a few favorites above, but check it out for yourself! I can't believe I hadn't heard these tracks before. It's just another amazing direction to see Bob's influence take. Enjoy.
