Jason Wilson Sumach Roots & The Responsables – Midwinter Reggae Warmup Night2

Jason Wilson’s music has been described as, among other things, “Jazz-Reggae”, “Global-Roots” and “Post-Reggae”. While none of these quite cover it, Wilson’s art is, nevertheless, truly unique; it is a sound where the reggae portion is freely brushed – not strictly detailed – allowing space on the canvass for wildly divergent inspirations such as Bach, Scottish Pibroch, folk-rock and bebop to peek through. In essence, Wilson combines reggae with the improvisational sensibility of jazz and then layers it with the storytelling quality of the Scottish folk tradition. LISTEN https://vimeo.com/330577643

The Responsables – What started out once as a tiny little trio in late 2009 has grown into a core six-piece reggae groove outfit that brings the good vibes. That said, these days it’s more like a nine-piece! Four part harmonies, a blend of reggae roots, a touch of afrobeat, and some funky breaks, it’s always a rockin’ dance party!
