Fri 25 Oct / 7.30pm
Get ready to rocksteady with Gary Crosby’s sensational Jazz Jamaica All Stars with special guests Brinsley Forde, Noel McKoy and rising vocal stars Dem 3 in The Trojan Story – a live music extravaganza celebrating the legendary label and artists of Trojan Records.
Established in 1968, the London – based label was the first to distribute the music of Jamaica on a grand scale, becoming for many in the UK the first point of contact with Jamaican music and culture and offering a meeting place for young people to celebrate in sound what unites rather than divides us.
This stellar orchestra of 22 acclaimed and rising stars features award-winning saxophonists Denys Baptiste and Camilla George joined by members of hip jazz strings quartet Tomorrow’s Warriors’ StringTing.
The Trojan Story features many of the best-loved anthems from the label, including Desmond Dekker’s hit Israelites, Tony Tribe’s classic Red Red Wineand Harry J All Stars’ The Liquidator, specially arranged by Jason Yarde.
Jazz Jamaica All Stars will be joined by the spectacular new THSH Reggae Choir with an opening set from Birmingham’s own Notebenders.
