Random Start #16: ‘Silver Dollar’ – Tommy McCook and The Skatalites

Now I’ma let you finish, but Tommy McCook was the best reggae saxophonist of all time! OF ALL TIME! And this song has one of my favourite saxophone hooks OF ALL TIME. The improvised part in the middle is incredibly jazzy and with a ska accompaniment, it all gets rather interesting. For whoever didn’t know, I am a huge reggae junkie so expect a lot more reggae to pop up.

Another interesting song that came on shuffle in the car this morning was the song ‘Listening Man’ by The Bees. A very motown/soul feel from a band straight out of the Isle of Wight, the song has another great horns section and the chorus was stuck in my head all day whilst stuck behind a till at work.
