Rocksteady is officially Monty Alexander’s recording. His deal with Telarc, now being realized, was that he record a straight jazz recording and then one of his own choosing. Mr. Alexander, along with his Jamaican brother Ernest Ranglin, turns his attention to the ska music of their young adulthood. And this music absolutely smacks of the islands. Few musical styles can conjure temporal images the way ska and reggae do for salty sea air, rum, and smoke.

Personnel: Monty Alexander (piano and melodica) Ernest Ranglin (lead guitar) Quentin Baxter (drums) Toots Hibbert (vocals on "Pressure Drop") Junior Jazz (rhythm guitar) Gary Mayone (keyboards) Courtney Panton (hand drums on "Nightwork" and "River Nile") Hassan Shakur (acoustic bass).

Monty Alexander & Ernest Ranglin - Rocksteady - 2004 Жанр: Jazz Год выпуска диска: 2004 Производитель диска: США Аудио кодек: FLAC Тип рипа: image+ Since 1998, secure in his jazz credentials, he has been reminding listeners of those roots, cranking out album after album and managing to unite jazz and reggae in a sometimes irresistible fusion. This time, Alexander reaches further back to pre-reggae Jamaican pop from the late '60s/early '70s, bringing along a guitar-slinging friend from the old days, Ernest Ranglin.
