This is cutting edge yet melodic Reggae in a definite NYC style featuring the cream of the NYC Reggae scene

Biography

The CD is composed mostly of original songs by Louie Fleck that deal loosely and directly with the idea of alienation in the psychological sense and also with some science fiction ramifications! Of course, the music is heavily Reggae influenced, but it crosses over many stylistic boundaries and operates on several levels. Just like New York, there are numerous surprises lurking in every corner of this CD, but you have to hear it to understand!

Some of the best New York based musicians and performers are appearing on the CD such as: Original Smurph, Marcia Davis (Outro), Brian "Milo" Lowe (The MOT!VES, Shaka Milo), Ronnie Butler (Israel Vibrations, Eek, Meditations), Charmaine DaCosta (Wirl-A-Girl), Maggie Roche (The Roches), Simone Gordon (Outro), Kalvin Kristi, Keith Johnston (Lisa-Lisa & Cult Jam), Papa Linley, Bela Fleck (banjo), Pamelia Kurstin (theremin), Laury Webb (Meditations, Eek) Pam Fleming (trumpet), Ban Levine (trombone), Jenny Hill (sax), and many others.

For over 5 years, our weekly Reggae jam has brought together a diverse group of people who love to make Reggae music in all of it's permutations. Everyone who performs on this CD has been part of that experience. Now it's time for you to join us! Get a copy of this CD, you really don't want to miss this one, seen!
