But the combination of Jamaican-born jazz pianist Monty Alexander and reggae godfathers Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare works beautifully here for a number of reasons: first of all, Alexander is a gifted melodist with an unerring sense of groove (not always a given with jazz players), and second of all, Sly and Robbie emancipated themselves long ago from reggae's rhythmic strictures, so there's lots of variety on this album.

||Monty Makes it a First For Me|
I read a review on this CD recently in a UK HiFi magazine ("wonderful sound" it said) and decided to make this my first foray into Super Audio. It is - SUPER Audio. It's also my first Monty Alexander session and will not be the last. The sound shouldn't really be the main priority but when you listen on my system it is. The music, too, is superb. Be prepared to be moved with the raunchy feel of "In Crowd" and "Mercy, mercy" Every track is great and I'm glad that once more HiFi ambition has widened my musical taste again.
