Jazz pianist Monty Alexander was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. On the first day that he went for chemotherapy, he had a stroke that affected his left side. He couldn't target notes with his left hand. He would reach for a C and hit an A. Then he lost his temper and punched a wall and broke bones in his right hand. But he somehow recovered and is back and still swinging hard as he demonstrates in a 2016 tribute to Frank Sinatra. Go Monty!


The woman in the black dress is his wife named Cat.

Good to hear he's recovered! I'm a big fan. Since way back in the '80s
