JAY DOUGLAS & CHRIS BUTCHER: Messengers (2017) + Video

JAY DOUGLAS & CHRIS BUTCHER:  MessengersRating: ★★★★★ Stand by for massive rootsy old school funky reggae as Jay Douglas and Chris Butcher get together to lay down the positivity vibes with new single Messengers. Jamaica-to-Toronto transplant Douglas has been doing it on Canada’s reggae scene since the 70s and has most definitely still got it, while trombonist Butcher leads the Heavyweights Brass Band and has played with Delfeayo Marsalis. Single Messengers comes with the instro and is – frankly impossible to listen to and stand still. Plenty of organs, squelchy guitars and the sort of uplifting message that is all too rare in these benighted times, I think you’ll agree.
