Released: 14th Oct 2013


with prince buster at the helm, the master saxophonist deploys his hard-edged sound over a variety of cuts, including a couple of forays into ‘funky‘ reggae.

jazz has a long history in jamaica & among jamaican diaspora musicians. on this album, as is often the case with jamaican music, while jazz is the jumping off point it is essentially a set of reggae instrumentals. tommy mccook was an excellent musician & arranger & could be relied upon to deliver enough quality to give ‘reggae in jazz’ a coherent & unified feeling. meanwhile the level of musical dexterity & care gone into the production confirms buster’s reputation as both a capable & imaginative producer.
