Here's reggae with a Jazz flavour...

Zion Kings always have quality productions. Their latest production is H.I.M. Teachings riddim. Top cuts for me are from Akae Beka, Lloyd Brown the 'Musical Warrior,' Marlon Asher and a new name to me Amani Seearasta.


Jemere Morgan is the son of Morgan Heritage's Gramps Morgan and he has released a pop tune with reggae to it. 'Shine With Me' may help Jemere in his budding career as well as reggae music with the borders it could cross.

Here's one that caught me a second time around. It's the return of Joanna Marie with her rendition of 'Silhoutte' made popular in the world of reggae by Dennis Brown & originally sung by The Rays in 1957. Also made a hit by The Four Seasons, Herman's Hermits & lastyly in 1990 by the UK singer Cliff Richards. All reached top ten charts.  Joanna's version is on the 'Love I Can Feel' riddim.

Here's another riddim, we overlooked. It has now been captured for the love we have to all. Its the Swagg Reggae Riddim with top cuts from long lost Natty King, Akae Beka, Uhuru G which says features Mykal Rose and in reality he says a few stanna stannas in the beginning & thats it, and lastly Army Gideon.

This one I am surprised didn't catch me as I am a big Luciano fan. I think I might have missed it when it played in the mix the first because when I heard this week I liked it right away. It's Luciano - Nuh Play Ting - on the Nice Easy Riddim.


Here's a soca riddim we heard 2 months ago called the 2am Project. I remember because of the Patrice Roberts track. I was a bit on the fence about that one alone. This time around I like all 3 tracks.


The Melbourne Ska Orchestra has done a great rendition of a classic 'Carry Go Bring Come.'

Hepcat returns with 'From Kingston To Montego Bay' classic style rocksteady reggae about Rudie, you know Rudie right? You should and whether you do or you don't take a listen.


My progressive/alternative rock music lovers should like this one. It's The Shins who have released a new album of  songs from their latest 'Heartworms' in a different style. The album is called 'Flipped' 'Worm's Heart.' They musically have redone all the songs from the slow ones to fast & fast ones to slow. The one we like is 'Half A Million' originally done with a pop rock feel, now in a reggae/ska version. Here's both versions.
