Artwork – Jamaican Jazz Orchestra ‘Brain Freeze’

Celebrated for their seamless fusion of Jamaican roots and jazz, the Jamaican Jazz Orchestra emerges from the same lineage as the ska pioneers, The Skatalites, propelled by the individual brilliance of its jazz virtuosos. Their music serves as a canvas for the musicians to display their prowess. Returning with a new single from the fresh EP, the Belgian Jamaican Jazz Orchestra maintains their authentic essence while infusing a vintage, earthy ambiance into their sound.

Guided by the innovative compositions of guitarist Wouter Rosseel (known for his work with Pura Vida, Lee Scratch Perry, and The Congos), the Orchestra’s latest single, “Brain Freeze,” draws inspiration from the rhythmic bassline of a track from the soundtrack of the film ‘Les Triplettes De Belleville’. Incorporating a delightful, jazzy horn riff, an evocative open-string guitar melody, and authentic Jamaican percussion, the song encapsulates a complete groove. Notably, it showcases an Ernest Ranglin-inspired guitar solo, adding a touch of virtuosity to the ensemble.

Artwork for GT Moore – Propaganda

G.T. Moore is a singer, composer and instrumentalist with a recording career that stretches back to the early seventies. His band the “Reggae Guitars” were the first white group to seriously attempt an authentic reggae sound. Not only proving himself in the reggae scene but also with bands / artists like Heron, Shusha, and as a session musician for Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Johnny Nash, Poly Styrene..   

‘Propaganda’ out today on all digital platforms!

Many years ago I met Vaughn Benjamin (singer of Midnite) by chance on a beach in Belgium, at a reggae festival. The half ’n hour we all spent talking I still get energy from. After that I started to write sings differently and develop a deeper understanding of Rastafarianism and the bible. Propaganda was one go the midnite tunes I recorded at the time with the Goldmaster Allstars. Vaugh Benjamin died suddenly and tragically, to me his still the leading Rastafarian poet and orator.
