Artist: David Hillyard & the The Rocksteady 7
Title: Self-Titled
Label Badasonic Records

Afro Jamaican Jazz from New York City!

Burrulero is a 4 song EP featuring the 2016 european lineup of Rocksteady 7. We pulled up into Nico Leonard's studio in funky funky Charleroi and proceeded to lay down the music, mostly live. Burrulero is called that cause its half Burru and half Bolero. The jamaican version is slow and moody. The latin version is uptempo and aggressive. So Long Cedric is a memorial/tribute to the legendary Jamaican sax player, Cedric Brooks. Kingston Town features the crooning vocals of Larry McDonald. His voice is a throwback to the sensitive sounds of Billy Eckstine and Joe Williams. The EP as a whole is a rich moment of time and sound in Rocksteady 7 history. I hope you enjoy it!
