This "Jamaican Jazz" ensemble are sophisticated innovators of the American ska and jazz scene and display their capabilities here in this live performance of 'Asaw Fofo'.
In April 2011, saxophonist David Hillyard zoomed down the west coast on tour with the rotating Rocksteady Seven in toll. The release of the band's latest album, "Get Back Up!" was released by Whatevski.org in 2009 and received worldwide praise for its pioneering sound, blending early American jazz and reggae music with a modern twist.
