CHICAGO JAMAICAN JAZZ ENSEMBLE

What this is about is best described by Jump Up Records: “TWO LEGENDS & A SON is an all star trio starring Charley Organaire, Lester Sterling (Skatalites), and Sultan Ali, son of Prince Buster. Hear the golden age of ska come alive once again in this once of a lifetime cabaret showcase, this electrifying set includes scorching classics from The Skatalites, Prince Buster, and Charley plus more favorite original ska hits reinterpreted and improvised by the trio. . The Chicago Jamaican Jazz Ensemble is an 8 piece ensemble that plays music in the tradition and style of early Jamaican Studio One dance bands. Before reggae, there was the celebratory music of independence in Jamaica. Music made for dancing, music that was Jamaican Jazz!

We hope you have a chance to be there.
