Soul Jazz Records Presents: Studio One Scorcher Vol. 2 - Instrumentals on Import 2LP
The legendary Skatalites, alongside the later Studio One in-house bands - the Soul Vendors, Sound Dimension, Soul Defenders and Brentford Road All Stars – were as much a part of the classic Studio One sound as were the singers that they accompanied such as Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, Marcia Griffiths and Bob Marley and The Wailers.
This album features many of the musicians involved with Studio One who literally defined Reggae music. From the Skatalites members Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo to killer sidemen such as trombonist Vin Gordon (aka Don Drummond Jnr), saxophonist Cedric "Im" Brooks, keyboardist and Twelve Tribes of Israel member Pablove Black. Many of the rhythms that these musicians created became the back-bone of the Jamaican musical world and their songs have been replayed and re-versioned by 1000's of Reggae producers ever-since.
Studio One Scorcher Vol. 2 features classic and super-rare tracks all recorded under Clement ‘Sir Coxsone' Dodd's supervision at the legendary recording studio and record label. As well as sixteen killer tracks the album comes with new sleevenotes and photography by Dennis Morris and Adrian Boot making this another essential Studio One Reggae release for connoisseurs of Reggae and newcomers alike.
