The Skatalites: Essential Artist Collection - The Skatalites

1. Product Details

During the early 1960's, the sound of ska exploded upon Jamaica's musical landscape, with the driving dynamic sound championed by arguably the greatest ensemble of musicians ever to have performed and recorded on the island. Fronted by legendary saxophonist Tommy McCook, The Skatalites also comprised a veritable who's who of Kingston-based performers, their number including trombonist Don Drummond, tenor saxman Roland Alphonso, drumming supremo Lloyd Knibb and keyboard prodigy Jackie Mittoo. Following their creation in the summer of '64, this powerhouse instrumental combo dominated the island's music industry for 18 glorious months, the very best of their work produced by famed Treasure Isle Records boss, Arthur 'Duke' Reid.
