Kingston All Stars to drop album March 17!

Just in time for summer, my man Mossman the Bossman will come through with a most righteous roots reggae project for the reggae massive.  That’s right…Canadian producer, engineer and musician Moss “Mossman” Raxlen teams up with some of reggae’s most legendary artists for an album that will turn many heads, Presenting:  Kingston All Stars.

Who are the Kingston All Stars you ask? 

The Kingston All Stars includes a cadre of legendary session players largely responsible for some of the greatest Jamaican music ever recorded.  The group includes Sly Dunbar and Mikey “Boo” Richards (drums); Hux Brown and Mikey “Mao” Chung (guitars); Robbie Lyn and Ansel Collins (keyboards); Supersad and Calvin (kette drums); Dean Barnett (steel pan); and Roger White (guitar and percussion). 

The album, titled Presenting:  Kingston All Stars features vocal performances from the likes of  Cedric Myton (The Congos), R Zee Jackson, Prince Allah, Alana Jonsana, Stranger Cole and Trevor McNaughton (Melodians).  The album was recorded at The Mixing Lab studio in Kingston during the winter and spring of 2016, with further overdubbing and mixing overseen by Moss in Montreal.

As I put the finishing touches on my review of the album, check the album’s opening track, a rocking rhythmic instrumental shout out Ethiopian style titled “Tribute to Kebra Hi-Fi”
