Direct from their performance at the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival the previous day, the award-winning Jamaican jazz pianist Monty Alexander and his band, the Harlem Kingston Express, made a tour stop in Schenectady recently.

The Music Haven concert was moved from Central Park to Proctors, due to inclement weather, but the spirits of the musicians (and the audience) certainly weren’t dampened. Alfred St. John’s Trinidad & Tobago Steelband opened the free concert.
