Ribble Valley Jazz Festival presents: JAZZ JAMAICA
The mighty Jazz Jamaica have rightly earned their reputation as ‘one of the UK’s leading good-time bands’ (The Independent) from their many exuberant live performances and dynamic album releases over the past two decades.
As the Cheltenham International Jazz Festival put it: "Jazz Jamaica should be permanent ambassadors to the United Nations of Good Times."
In Autumn 2012, bandleader Gary Crosby regrouped Jazz Jamaica All Stars for a sensational roots-rock-reggae-jazz salute to the iconic Bob Marley and The Wailers, paying tribute to their seminal album 'Catch A Fire' as headliner for the new Lively Up! Festival, that toured the UK from September-November 2012. He invited reggae star Brinsley Forde and the funky strings of Urban Soul Orchestra to join him, creating a sensational 31-piece orchestral music extravaganza that had audiences up on their feet and partying the night away.
Ribble Valley Jazz Festival will host the 10-piece version of this wonderful band at The Grand, on Friday, April 28th, Doors 7pm, Stage 8pm.
