More About

During the revolutionary '60s, the Skatalites first proselytized "Freedom Sound," a positive-vibration combo of groovy beats, soulful horns, and improvised solos. Their breezy international approach to dance music fused island sounds like calypso with American R&B. Hardcore Bob Marley fans will know the Skatalites supported the "One Love" legend's earliest adventures with the Wailing Wailers. Their ska begat rocksteady, which begat reggae, the genre's far more popular younger cousin. While most of the Skatalites' founding members have passed on, their music continues to thrive via an ever-evolving lineup that just dropped Walk With Me, a bright new album of mostly instrumental tracks.
