Don't Miss Troy Ellis & The Hail Jamaica Band
Like many a musical youth growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, in the Seventies, young Troy Ellis dreamed of becoming a reggae star.
Unusually, however, he knew a lot about the music scene thanks to his father, the great Studio 1 vocalist Alton Ellis. A major rocksteady and reggae star from the mid-Sixties, Alton Ellis moved to London in the Eighties and young Troy – now a professional singer himself – joined him there, moving on to Bristol in 2005.
Ellis senior sadly passed away four years ago, an event marked by a huge celebratory concert in Jamaica, and now his life is being commemorated by his son Troy's new album featuring reworkings of many of the man's greatest tunes.
Naturally the son has stayed faithful to his father's versions, recreating the crooning harmonies, snappy rhythms and smooth brass thanks to the Hail Jamaica Band, a well-chosen group of seasoned players from Bristol's reggae scene.
