CD Review: Bless Up by Ernest Ranglin

Ernest Ranglin’s new CD entitled Bless Up is a great addition to a very impressive collection of music. Ernest has demonstrated his skills for original rhythms from his homeland, alternating between Ska and Dub. The album is fused with a couple of jazz versions ‘Bra from Kilimanjaro’ and ‘Good Friends’. ‘Follow On’, ‘Rock Me Steady’ and ‘Mystic Blue’ are examples of great fusion, complementing a fine Ska brass sound with a Dub rhythm section. Bless Up is highly recommended for all, simply great enjoyment.
