"The Gramophone Allstars: Jazzmaica" Documentary
The Gramophone Allstars are releasing their fourth album, ‘Jazzmaica’: an encounter between Jamaican beats and Afro-American music from the sixties. Now expanded to big-band format, the group explores and revisits the path taken by Jamaican musicians decades ago when they discovered soul, funk and R&B hits on American radio stations. The fifteen musician big band brings the explosive energy of songs originally composed as dance music to a higher level. ‘Jazzmaica’ is definitely the most ambitious challenge undertaken to date by The Gramophone Allstars since their appearance back in 2008.
A three-man team has been filming the whole process to make a documentary that pictures how hard, intense, highly planned and emotional has the making of the album been for the band.
