"West Coast All-Star Ska Big Band paying tribute to early 1960's Jamaican Ska originators, The Skatalites. Pooling from the best-of-the-best Ska musicians from the last 20 years, Western Standard Time is a groundbreaking project commemorating 50 years of musical heritage. With the shear size of the group, the power and harmonic depth will be revolutionary but at the same time the music and feel will be grounded in its original roots."
Not sure why I missed this in the past few months and I'm also surprised about the few clicks, WST are recieving for their videos. May the CD sales be more successfull. I wish they'd come to Germany one day but Big Bands rarely go on tour so I'm enjoying the videos instead. China Clipper is my favourite, which is indeed a brilliant interpretation with refined arragement, inspired performance, outstanding trumpet and saxophone solo, and a riddim you can't avoid to let it catch you. The crowd at the show is witness, their dancing is testimony and their enthusiasm evidence for the liveliness of SKA.
