The Skatalites were inheritors of a Jamaican jazz tradition that preceded their official formation (1963) by at least 30 years, with groups like the Eric Deans Orchestra, and soloists like Jiver Hutchinson (who played alongside Louis Armstrong in London). All of their players, including the late trombonist Don Drummond  (I'm completing a novel based on his life) were heavily into and influenced by Coltrane, Parker and the other giants.

State of Nature, which includes beautiful versions of All Blues and Song For My Father, also contains nine Jordan penned originals, as well as Jordan's interpretation of Joe Jackson's Steppin' Out.

"Boz Scaggs? Soulive?  IMHO there's not much jazz music coinciding with  
the JazzWeek Summit that I'm dying to hear - Jae Sinnett, David
Murray, Tierney Sutton, Barbara Dennerlein & Joe Locke are about it.  
Third World, the Skatellites & Wild Magnolias are great but jazz?  I don't
think so."
The Skatalites are jazz. They were inspired by hearing Art Blakey & The
Jazz Messengers and other horn jazz acts coming over the water to Jamaica
records & radio stations in New Orleans and other locations.

Burlington Discover Jazz Festival has had The Skatalites several times and
there was real improvisation and great arrangements every minute, not to
mention killer dance rhythms.

Give them a real listen,
