Gary Crosby's award-winning group Jazz Jamaica return to The Albany this Saturday 25th April with a brand new set: Tighten Up! They promise to raise the roof with their special blend of rocksteady, ska, jazz and pumping reggae grooves. Tighten Up! pays tribute to some of Jamaica's greatest artists and record labels, featuring all-time classics like: The Skatalites' "Guns of Navarone", Prince Buster's "Al Capone" and Harry J All Stars' "Liquidator".
Given the name of the new show, who better to provide DJ support than Mistah Brown from the Tighten Up reggae club (recently relaunched in Brixton) who will be joining Bid Mosaku (Rugged Tunes Sound System) to spin a selection of the finest Jamdown sounds.
The line-up for the gig will be:
Gary Crosby – Double Bass / Band Leader
Abram Wilson – Trumpet
Nathaniel Facey – Alto Saxophone
Denys Baptiste – Tenor Saxophone
Harry Brown – Trombone
Rod Youngs – Drums
Robin Banerjee – Guitar
