Babaliah Loves Ska

About twenty years ago I've played alto saxophone in a band called Mellow Mood. We played 50's and 60's jamaïcan ska and rocksteady. Some classics and some caribbean jazz covers of soul, bossa nova and jazz classics. The short selection here is mostly made of 45's, some Blue Beat ones, some white label ones... In the landscape of "Tropical" or "Black" music, Ska has had a particular place. In my "musical history" too. I now consider this soulfull and jazzy music from one really rich Island from the big antilles as a really good example of early independant and modern african rooted music... Enjoy!
