Cedric IM Brooks - "Sly Mongoose"

Jamaican saxophonist Cedric IM Brooks was considered one of the most innovative musicians in reggae music during the 1960's and 70's. Blending elements of jazz and funk with Afro-beat and Latin rhythms, he stretched the boundaries of what was considered reggae to include his own largely instrumental and richly soulful style of music. Brooks' 1974 album with his band The Light of Saba is an especially pleasurable gem. Simultaneously smart, uplifting, and timeless in quality and production, it's a truly indelible record: once you find a copy, you won't ever be letting go of it.
