TDE Promotions: Cleveland Watkiss & The Great Jamaican Songbook

About

Cleveland Watkiss, arguably the UK's finest jazz singer, explores his Jamaican heritage celebrating the songs of great artists such as Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Delroy Wilson.

In his Great Jamaican Songbook, Watkiss brings songs to audiences that tell poignant stories about the times and the culture, with that deep, infectious, laid-back drum and bass rhythm. 'A hard-hitting performance that tapped deep into roots Reggae'

'From the bone-shaking power of Fatman Sound System to the sweet-toned vocals of 1970s reggae greats such as Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Delroy Wilson, reggae is an integral part of Watkiss' musical DNA, and the Songbook pays fulsome homage both to the music's golden period and to his own Jamaican roots.'

'An icon of UK jazz'
