This weekend, the great jazz pianist Monty Alexander, legendary Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin and the past year’s most talked-about new reggae artist, Chronixx, heated up the legendary Blue Note jazz club, for a packed house that braved sub-freezing temperatures in arctic-blasted New York City. The multi-generational show, billed as “A History of Reggae and The Music of Jamaica,” represented decades of living Jamaican musical history—at 21, Chronixx is more than 60 years younger than Ranglin.

As the official media sponsor of the event, LargeUp was in the house for the second of four performances Saturday night.
