Editorial Reviews

Following on from Soul Jazz Records' earlier Jackie Mittoo The Keyboard King at Studio One comes Jackie Mittoo and The Soul Brothers Last Train To Skaville. Jackie Mittoo is one of the most important artists in the history of Jamaican music. As founding member of the legendary Skatalites, as in-house arranger/producer at Studio One and as a solo artist in his own right leading groups such as The Soul Brothers, Sound Dimension and Soul Vendors. These classic and rare recordings were made in the mid-1960s at Studio One. The Soul Brothers bridged the gap between Ska and the arrival of Rocksteady mixing it all up with Funk, Jazz and Latin styles.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bless Soul Jazz for the amazing collections of instrumental Jamaican music they have released from the island's golden era. This great set fits right in with their releases "Jackie Mittoo; The Keyboard King at Studio One," and "Studio One Scorcher (volumes 1 & 2)." Those are three of the greatest CD releases of Jamaican instrumental music, EVER. Soul Jazz also released the more collector-oriented "Sound Dimension: Jamaica Soul Shake, Vol. 1," featuring rare cuts from that Mittoo-led house band.

From Soul Jazz:

"Following on from Soul Jazz Records' earlier Jackie Mittoo 'The Keyboard King at Studio One' comes Jackie Mittoo and The Soul Brothers 'Last Train To Skaville'.

Jackie Mittoo is one of the most important artists in the history of Jamaican music. As founding member of the legendary Skatalites, as in-house arranger/producer at Studio One and as a solo artist in his own right leading groups such as The Soul Brothers, Sound Dimension and Soul Vendors. These classic and rare recordings were made in the mid-1960s at Studio One. The Soul Brothers bridged the gap between Ska and the arrival of Rocksteady mixing it all up with Funk, Jazz and Latin styles."

This is brilliant, timeless stuff. Check it out.

By Leghorn Faust on November 21, 2014
Format: Audio CD
This album contains material by Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Brothers, who were the transitionary group in between the Skatalites and and the more reggae oriented Sound Dimension. Also featured on this release are ex-Skatalites members Johnny Moore on trumpet, Lloyd Brevett on bass and Roland Alphonso on sax. There is some great instrumental ska and early reggae music on this disc, with some flourishes of calypso and Latin influences thrown in for good measure. Stand out tracks include "Voodoo Moon," "Ska Shuffle," "From Russia With Love" and the floor stompin'"Ska-Culation." A testament that ska didn't just disappear when rocksteady hit the Jamaican music scene. BUY IT.
