Jazz Jamaica All Stars: The Trojan Story - Live Stream
In a live-streamed concert, Gary Crosby and guests Brinsley Forde (Aswad), Noel McKoy and rising vocal stars Dem Three celebrate legendary label Trojan Records.
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 Wine' and Harry J All Stars' 'Liquidator', specially arranged by Ben Burrell and Jason Yarde.
The line-up includes saxophonists Denys Baptiste and Camilla George, and instrumentalists drawn from the Tomorrow's Warriors stable.
They are joined by members of jazz string ensemble Tomorrow's Warriors StringTing and stars-in-the-making Dem Three (Cherise Adams-Burnett, Kianja Harvey-Elliott and Cara Crosby-Irons).
Jazz Jamaica All Stars are also joined by Reggae Choir, led by Mobo-winning jazz vocalist Zara McFarlane.
Established in 1968, London-based Trojan Records was the first label 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.
From the beginning, the record label encouraged people to celebrate and unite through music, breaking down barriers and promoting inclusivity.
After disruption of the national tour by Covid-19 The Trojan Story comes to us for its grand finale.
