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 historyโ€”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.
