Pianist Monty Alexander and guitarist Ernest Ranglin performed in Kingston.

The Monty Alexander & Ernie Ranglin concert was held on Sunday, July 1st in the packed Grande Ballroom of the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. More than two thousand patrons were treated to a splendid show of classical jazz and reggae music by Jazz pianist Monty Alexander and guitarist Ernie Ranglin.

The show, which lasted for more than two and one half hours thrilled and entertained the audience throughout the night. Their performance included pieces such as Slavery Days - Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley’s Hurts to be Alone and My Boy Lollipop, better known as a vocal ska piece popularised by Jamaica's very own Millie Small. Cameo appearances were made by Gem Myers and Myrna Hague.

Among those in attendance were former Prime Minister’s Hon. P.J Patterson, Hon. Bruce Golding, and former Governor General Sir Kenneth Hall. Musicians Frankie Campbell & Grub Cooper of Fab Five and several other dignitaries were also present.
