Jazz Jamaica All Stars: The Trojan Story / Hull Jazz Festival - Hull City Hall - Kingston upon Hull

Hull Jazz Festival presents JAZZ JAMAICA ALL STARS celebrates 50 years of Trojan Records with THE TROJAN STORY plus Special Guests and Hull Freedom Chorus.Established in 1968, The legendary reggae/rock steady London based label Trojan was the first label to distribute the music of Jamaica on a large scale and became for many in the UK the first point of contact with Jamaican music and culture, and a meeting place for young people who celebrated in sound what united rather than divided them. With its re-workings of popular tracks and innovative originals, Trojan became a crucial link between two very different cultures. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the extraordinary phenomenon that was Trojan records, Jazz Jamaica All Stars pays tribute to some of Jamaica’s greatest artists and record labels, with The Trojan Story featuring many of the best-loved tunes of all time including Desmond Dekker’s hit Israelites, Tony Tribe’s classic Red Red Wine and Harry J All Stars’ Liquidator. Jazz Jamaica All Stars feature an impressive line-up of established and rising stars who will be joined by Special Guests plus Hull Freedom Chorus. Bring your dancing shoes and get ready to rock!
