Jamaica! November 16, 2009

I recently had the the opportunity to play bass for two Jamaican music CDs. Guitar Atlas: Jamaica by Raleigh Green and Drum Atlas: Jamaica by Pete Sweeney are instructional book/CD sets all about the musical history of Jamaica. From mento to dancehall, I really learned a lot of interesting beats and styles for these sessions. Raleigh and Pete were my backing band on the Total Blues Bassist project, so it was cool to return the favor.

Here are a few selected tracks from each CD, for your listening pleasure. Both are available through National Guitar Workshop Publications.
