Dirty Taxi, the latest release from Sly & Robbie and the Taxi Gang is set for release March 27th on iTunes and a variety of fine e-tailers.
Produced by the legendary duo Sly & Robbie, the album features a wide variety of guest musicians who make up the world-class Taxi Gang. A short list of contributors includes trombonist Nambo Robinson, Saxophonist Dean Fraser, keyboardist Robbie Lyn, and artists like Scantana and Cherine. The musicianship is of the top quality fans around the world have come to expect from Sly & Robbie.
On top of everything, Dirty Taxi is an envelope-pushing release that blends genres and eras of world music. Tracks like Mambo Jamaicano featuring Nambo Robinson and Cherine blend classic reggae music, modern sounds, and a liberal dose of world music, while Memphis Underground blends in hip hop styles courtesy of rising Jamaican rapper Scantana. El Cubancherio blends the sounds of Latin music with the classic “Rockfort Rock” riddim that has been a staple throughout the eras of reggae music. The result is an eclectic album that music fans of all tastes are able to appreciate.
Dirty Taxi is proof of the enduring quality of Jamaican music - taking preconceived boundaries of genres and smashing them into a brilliant composition.
