Jamaican Jazz Lovers needs your help !!!
After this year, in which we have taken shows from under the stones, Jamaican Jazz Lovers has decided to transform all this accumulated energy into music and what will be our second album; Embracing the Down Beat.
At the end of January we decided to go into the studio to record twelve songs, eleven of them original plus a jazz standard in the key of reggae.
The work is therefore already recorded and edited, it is from this point where we have been forced to ask for your help, since in order to finish the master's degree, the production and the publication, your collaboration will be essential. In addition, we are convinced that it will help the band to take a step forward, for which we will be eternally grateful to you.
Jamaican Jazz Lovers we are a Valencian band of skajazz and reggae fused with improvisations and adaptations of some jazz standard to these styles. It arises at the beginning of 2019, the fruit of the friendship and love of Jamaican jazz between several musicians from formations such as Jah Macetas, Zoo or the New York Ska Jazz Ensemble, regulars at Jamaican jams in this city.
All the rewards are exclusive material of the band except the works in vinyl format with which they work together with the Valencian record label Newentun Resistance Solidarity. All those who buy tickets for the presentation concert will receive the rewards right there. Shipping costs within the national territory are included, for shipments abroad you must acquire the specific reward for it.
We have tried to adapt the rewards for all types of pockets and that both those who prefer vinyl, I gave or directly just help us stay happy. Finally note that as an exclusivity in the collaboration of this verkami, the records and vinyls will be dedicated if you wish.
Here you can listen to our latest work and see the band live.

Finally, the distribution and publication of the vinyl will be done together with Newentun Resistance Solidarity.
