    Most Recent Castaway - 4th January, 2019
    Alex Monfort (2019)

    Visit Website

    Pianist, composer and bandleader Alex Monfort comes from the same French musical stream that has brought us Martial Solal and Jacques Loussier, Christian Jacob and Jean-Michel Pilc, Michel Petrucciani and Jacky Terrasson.

    Alex is still only 24 years old, but has years of formal musical education behind him. His recently released "Introspection" is a trio recording consisting of all originals, the titles of some of which make his influences obvious ("Mulgrew's Mood" for Mulgrew Miller, and "McColtrane" for McCoy Tyner and John Coltrane); for other influences, such as Chick Corea, you'll have to do yourself a favor and listen.
