Jerry Johnson Plays The Hits Of Lincoln Sugar Minott

Jerry Johnson's tenor sax graced many of Sugar's hits when they were both working out of Wackies Studio in NYC. And when you are looking for concepts and ideas for instrumental albums - reworking the big hits of a reggae superstar is a very good one! If you can get the singer to work with you as well, its even better. So every track features a portion of Sugar's vocals in fine style. What tunes do you get. Here they are. 'Live Loving' 'Lovers Rock' 'Man Hungry' 'My Love Is True' are just four that are featured. Jerry is backed on this set by Coozie Mellors and Val Douglas on bass, Noel Alphonso on drums, Earl Appleton on Keyboard and Donovan McKitty on guitar. A great work from a very talented sax player and a great tribute to a reggae legend.

Jerry Johnson - Just Cooling - Jerry Johnson

You don't get that many releases from Jerry but when they come, they come! Hot on the heels of Brass Rootz which features himself and trombonist Neville Anderson. This one is Jerry solo. A 12 track set that all that is good about Jerry. His sax playing is connects to reggae music to the traditions of New Orleans and the that same spirit lovers of Ska - will really be pleased to hear the Jerry as come up with a credible Ska sound fit for 2010. This is not some joke Ska thing. This is the real thing from a Sax player who's grown up and played with men from that era.  The tracks to look out for are 'Ballroom Ska' and 'Discovery Bay Ska' The remaing tracks are of course just as good. A nice mix of standards and originals done in a variety of modern styles. Recorded in and around NYC - with a lot of the Wackies crew. A fantastic set.
