Motorcity Roots


Inspired by the great Motown songbook, MOTORCITY ROOTS is the eagerly anticipated new album from Jazz Jamaica. Fifteen tracks of classic songs by Motown hit songwriters including Holland, Dozier & Holland, Smokey Robinson and Barrett Strong arranged Jazz Jamaica-style by members of the band. Led by bassist and Dune Records founder Gary Crosby, Jazz Jamaicas infectious blend of jazz, reggae and ska has earned the band critical acclaim and a devoted fan base over the last decade and a half. Alongside jazz luminaries such as Soweto Kinch and Denys Baptiste, and soul/R&B diva Juliet Roberts, the bands new 12-piece line up features some of the rising stars of the scene, including Abram Wilson and Zara McFarlane. Also featured here are special guests Sir Bill Morris (former leader of the Transport & General Workers Union), who narrates Marvin Gayes "Whats Going On", and nu-soul pioneer Omar, who lends his inimitable vocals to "Just My Imagination". The release of MOTORCITY ROOTS will be supported by a Jazz Jamaica UK tour from September-November plus further extensive touring in 2006. Tracks: I Want You Back (feat.
