It’s hard to believe that we now have fifteen NYSJE albums to enjoy! Quite an accomplishment in today’s music world, and maybe even more impressive for a “modern” traditional ska band. Think back to the humble beginnings of Rocksteady Freddie when he left The Toasters to start this wonderful project in the 90s – for us it’s crazy to think that the New York Ska Jazz Ensemble was the first ska concert at the Chicago House of Blues! As always you can expect top notch jazzy arrangements of foundation Jamaican sounds, over the years the players have changed but the vibe and energy remain the same. Freddie Reiter will never steer you wrong! “MINOR MOODS” arrived in 2002 and is also a stunning example of jazz ska & reggae bliss, a mostly instrumental delight that rivals The Skatalites in the modern era! Be it influenced by swing, boogie woogie, ragtime, big band….Rock Steady Freddie’s troop are still killing it year after year. “STEP FORWARD” was released in 2008 and features 12 tracks that are predominately originals but also includes DAVE BRUBECK and CHARLES MINGUS too!
