Review

While saxophonist Tony Greene has been influenced by jazz and Latin music, his heart remains true to the spirit of reggae. The range of Greene’s taste and the versatility of his chops keep his releases musically interesting, but it’s the hard-grooving island feel that appeals most directly. MIDNIGHT BLUE is no exception. With help from reggae rhythm godfathers Sly and Robbie, guitarist Ernie Ranglin, and singer Boris Gardiner, Greene serves up a spicy gumbo of reggae-based jams, with plenty of evidence of his fine horn work.
