Ernest Ranglin

Jazz Jamaica

Dub Store Records

Released: 12th January 2016 | 9 track reggae album

An unreleased album of mento and four-beat jazz, finally sees the light of day.

Locked in Federal Records' vaults for over half a century this set from one of the founding fathers of Jamaican music, the inimitable Ernest Ranglin, is imbued with his unique musical brilliance.

Recorded in 1964 at the Federal studio, this elegant yet unique previously unreleased album is said to be the origin of the Jamaican Mento meets 4 Beat Jazz. This brilliant album is one of the most important Jamaican Jazz recordings that Ernest Ranglin has ever made. Everything in this album starts with the traditional Caribbean Jazz classics and then develops into 4 Beat Jazz. Produced by Godfather of the Jamaican music, Ken Kouri, this album is nothing but deserves its title. You may want to add this next to the Guitar In Earnest [DSR-LP/CD-501] in your collection.
