Japan’s SKA FLAMES are back with their brand new full-length album “TURN UP” – and we’ve got the import vinyl exclusively for the USA! That’s right – it’s their first new album in 20+ years! For those of you who had to dig deep in the late 80’s to find any new ska, Japan’s SKA FLAMES were a bit of a holy grail band – thank goodness GAZ’S ROCKIN’ RECORDS UK (curated lovingly by GAZ MAYALL of THE TROJANS) released their first album “SKA FEVER” in 1989 otherwise the world might not have been hip to Japan’s traditional ska-jazz pioneers. These cats were basically The Skatalites of Japan, it’s that simple! The limited edition 7″ sold out quick, and we’ve got a super limited amount of these Japanese pressed beauties so don’t delay ACT NOW! Songs range from scorching jazz-ska to mellow rock steady, with dashes of Latin grooves and even a couple tracks with vocals.
On a similar vibe is the debut album from Buddy Jay’s Jamaican Jazz Band, who hail from Portland, OR. Buddy Jay’s Jamaican Jazz Band elaborates on the tradition of Jamaican Jazz and R n’B music, engaging a deep respect for the sound and pushing the music forward by writing original Jamaican jazz, ska, dub reggae, calypso and rocksteady influenced tunes that bring to mind The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo, Roland Alphonso, Ernest Ranglin, Lester Sterling, The Wailers, Prince Buster, Laurel Aitken, Byron Lee just to name a few! Their sound is firmly rooted in the golden era of Jamaican music – and is a must for fans looking for that vintage 1960’s and 1970’s sound! Get this!
