Jamaican pianist Monty Alexander has built a comfortable niche for himself by doing something that few other pianists with his credentials would attempt: He makes the reggae backbeat a base for swinging improvisation, for better or worse. He's been known to turn Duke Ellington's "Rockin' in Rhythm" into "Rockin' in Riddim."
