Harlem-Kingston Express Product Description



Harlem-Kingston Express by Monty Alexander was released Jun 14, 2011 on the Mot‚ma Music label. Some may be surprised to know that reggae music actually has deep roots in jazz. Harlem-Kingston Express Ska, reggae's stylistic precursor, came into being as a fusion of Jamaican mento, calypso, and American R&B, but some of its earliest and best players were Kingston jazz musicians, and early ska tunes were very often characterized by swinging rhythms and walking basslines. Ska eventually slowed down and its rhythms shifted, resulting first in the short-lived "rocksteady" style before it slowed further and became reggae, which dominated the island's music scene for a decade and a half before eventually being supplanted by the more raucous dancehall style. Harlem-Kingston Express contains a single disc with 11 songs.   ...See Full Description
