TOMMY MC COOK - REGGAE IN JAZZ

No solo de Roots vive el hombre.

"It’s unlikely that “Reggae in Jazz” was recorded as a ‘whole’ album. More likely there were a few sessions where the core of the album was recorded and then tracks were added to stitch together an album. Tracks and rhythms like “Black Out” were borrowed from Winston Riley in order to make up enough tracks for a saleable album. Given the financial overheads of recording new tracks from the beginning its likely that tracks were begged or borrowed from brother Winston and wherever else rhythm tracks could be sourced. Tommy McCook would then have added his arrangements and blown over the tracks that Buster had been able to source..."
