Listen to the new album by Courtney John. Courtney John is blessed with the finest voice in Jamaican music nowadays. Add to that the impressive band with whom he made Ecosystem, and you have the formula for a timeless #Reggae record.
His 2017 record, Ecosystem, is an amazing album for its lyricism, unmatched vocals, and marvelous musicianship. It will definitely be one of the best albums of 2017 (in any genre), and is an instant modern Reggae music classic.

Zaire 74: The African Performers on Wrasse Records captures a unique moment in African music, offering fans the first listen of complete, remixed and mastered sets by Franco and O.K Jazz, Tabu Ley Rochereau and Afrisa, Abeti Masikini with Abumba Masikini and Band, Orchestre Stukas, Miriam Makeba, and Pembe Dance Troupe.

These historic recordings were made at one of the most extraordinary, but tragically overlooked, events in African music history. Zaire 74 was remarkable because it was the first African festival of its kind, with leading African artists of the day appearing alongside James Brown and other major African-American stars.

As the world waited for the infamous Rumble in the Jungle match up between George Foreman and Muhammad Ali, trumpeter Hugh Masekela and producer Stewart Levine had a idea: To put on a three-day music festival uniting top African-American and African performers in a stadium in Kinshasa.

They called it Zaire 74.

The festival and the recordings that came out of it became the stuff of legend, as James Brown, Bill Withers, BB King, The Fania All Stars & Celia Cruz (and more) shared the stage with African stars. Yet the African musicians’ beautifully recorded sets were never released…until now.

The sets by Franco & O.K Jazz, and Tabu Ley Rochereau & Afrisa are phenomenal! After listening to it, I decided to take another look at the astonishing music documentaries by unparalleled music documentary director, Leon Gast. So, bookmark this page and prepare to spend a few hours coming back to watch all these amazing documentaries.
