Jim Murple Memorial

reggae, ska, rocksteady, seen live, french

Jim Murple Memorial is Jamaican R’n’B; real rhythm’n’blues, light and spellbinding, where suffering courts the joy of living, Jamaican style, leasing no one different! Way before the birth of rock-steady and reggae, this is R’n’B as played in the local dance bars of Kingston in the 50’s. We find a scintillating drummer, an upright bass, 2 unforgettable guitarists, cool and poppin’-horns, and of course… Nanou’s mild crystal voice, the treasures of labels such as Motown, Atlantic or Verve.
