2011 Limited Edition, First Time On Vinyl Release Mastered At Air Studios From The Original Analogue Tapes And Pressed On 180gm HQ Vinyl. Highly Recommended! “By All Rights, Jazz Jamaica All Stars' Massive Should Break Through To The Fabled Mainstream And Sell A Million Copies-To Hipsters Looking For Something A Little Different To Get Bodies Moving At Crowded Parties, To Jazz Aficionados Who Appreciate Sizzling Solos Over Bumping Beats, To Jamaican Pop Fans Who Can See Their Touchstones As Points Of Departure, To People Who Love The Brassy Swagger Of Big Bands And Miss When You Could Dance To It. Blooming From British Bassist Gary Crosby's Jazz Jamaica Group, The 20-Strong All Stars Work From A Simple But Devastatingly Effective Formula: A Dynamite Rhythm Section Lays Down Infectious Grooves While Trumpets, Trombones And Saxes Play Seductive Arrangements That Leave Plenty Of Room For High-Spirited Solos. The Sheer Joy That The Jazz Jamaica All Stars Find In All This Music, Though, Is What Really Makes This Record Irresistible. Jason Yarde's Arrangement Of "Footprints" Has A Deep Rhythmic Snap That Inspires Both Swaggering Playing From The Band And Rhapsodic, Hair-Raising Solos From Saxophonist Andy Sheppard And Vibraphonist Orphy Robinson. Yarde's Formidable Arrangement Of "Liquidator" Takes Itself Unseriously Enough To Quote Both The Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There" And Glenn Miller's "In The Mood" And Make It All Work. Vocalist Juliet Roberts Flows Sweetly On "My Boy Lollipop" And "Walk On By." Jazz Times.
