Tommy McCook founding member of the legendary group The Skatalites and the master session musician has left his mark over all the different styles of Jamaican music. The big band sound that leads to the beginning of Ska, to the forefront of Rocksteady and throughout the various stages that Reggae music would mutate itself into. All carrying Tommy McCook's distinctive stamp that always added a flavour to the songs style.


The 1970's sound that reggae mutated to would be heavier in feel lead by Bass and Drums with the organ pushed to the forefront. But many of the up and coming Producers like Bunny Lee (The Aggrovators Band), Joe Gibbs (The Professionals Band) and Studio's like the Hookim brothers Channel 1 set up had the foresight to keep using the musicianship of Tommy McCook and his arrangement skills to enhance this new sound.

It’s from this rich period that Kingston Sounds have compiled a selection of some of Mr McCook's greatest cuts that featured him blowing over some great tracks, that stripped of their vocals sees Tommy replace that with some fantastic lead lines.
