"TOMMY MC COOK" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 24 2009 - His talents would show even back in the 1960's when he was a part of the Skatalites who became more or less the Studio Band for Studio One.
Music by the Skatalites would in my idea appeal to lovers of Jazz and other forms wherein the horns play a dominant part.
However: like with so many Jamaican musicians, Tommy Mc Cook was one talented individual who, would he have been born in let's say a different country, probably reached world fame decades ago.
That's why the title of Tommy Mc Cook's track which is featured in today's edition of Dubroom Online is a bit noteworthy to me.
A green mango must ripen yet...
