Chimney Records: Country Bus Riddim

There's a big, big lineup on Chimney Records' latest release, the Country Bus Riddim!!    Anytime you can pull in Tarrus Riley, J Boog, Morgan Heirtage, Jah Vinci, I Octane, Konshens, and Alaine on one riddim, it has to smash. And it does!  It seems to be that the summer is always when the biggest riddims are released, so hopefully the Country Bus Riddim is just the start to a great summer of Reggae in 2015.

Album: Protoje - Ancient Future

Protoje has recently dropped his highly anticipated album, Ancient Future. Love the title of the project and the music follows up strong. A handful of solid tracks with the album overall a big step forward for one of Jamaica's biggest modern day reggae artists. Regardless of geography, Protoje is holding it down for the reggae scene with the new music and sending a big message to all the listeners out there. Purchase the album for yourself on iTunes & support reggae music! Respect

Monty Alexander -- A Jazz Pianist's take on Bob Marley

Driving to work, I scanned past a local Jazz station and was completely caught off guard by the sounds of Bob Marley!  Almost a month later, ever since I discovered the full album -- Jamaican-native, Monty Alexander's 1999 release of Stir It Up: The Music of Bob Marley -- I can't stop listening. I included a few favorites above, but check it out for yourself! I can't believe I hadn't heard these tracks before. It's just another amazing direction to see Bob's influence take. Enjoy.
