Big Ska Band - Featuring Corey Glover

Big Ska Band

Featuring Corey Glover

Release date: December 07, 2018
All star ska reggae band formed by Grammy winning producer Joe Ferry (The Skatalites / SKAndalous All Stars) featuring Corey Glover of Living Colour on vocals. 10 tracks of high octane 3rd wave ska, laid back summer reggae jams, Jamaican jazz instrumentals and stadium rock covers gone ska. Big Ska Band has been together for almost 25 years and has recorded five albums to date including Skallelujah, Big Ska, 55:22, Revival and the brand new self titled Jump Up Records release. The group is led by Grammy winning producer Joe Ferry, whose credits include Hi Bop Ska by The Skatalites; Greetings From Skamania by The Skatalites; and The Age of Insects, Hit Me and Punk Steady by SKAndalous Allstars. Joe Ferry is also co-writer of the modern ska classic, Skalloween which has been re-recorded for this new collection. On this ten track album the band's lead vocals are shared by Joey Ray, who is one of the most in-demand session singers in New York City, and Corey Glover from Grammy Award winning rock legends Living Colour. Stylistically, the album delivers something for everyone - up tempo third wave skankers with hi-octane horns and gang chorus, laid back summer reggae jams, jazzy Skatalites instrumentals, SKAandalous All Stars style cover tributes (including Radiohead's Creep and a stadium rock medley), rub-a-dubby steppers and so much more! A great listen from start to finish - this record literally takes you back to the diversity of records that came out in the 90s third wave heyday. Band members include: Uzimon on vocals and toasting, Vinnie Noble (Bim Skala Bim / Pilfers) throws down some manic trombone and arranged all the horns with saxophonist Neal Spitzer, Guitarist Dan Kottmann (credits include Tom Jones, Jeff Beck, Sheryl Crow, Santana), drummer Alan Jax Bowers (Parrot Beach / Jimmy Buffett) plus some studio wizardry to include samples of The Skatalites, courtesy of Shanachie Records.
