Great news! I have just recieved Ken Parker's new reggae album and it is amazing. Recorded with Willie Lindo in Miami with the Fab 5 band it also uses some samples of old Treasure Isle horns as he remade some of his classic oldies. I'll play 3 from it tomorrow on the Soundtapes and Swingeasy present Reggae show on www.purple-radio.co.uk
6-8pm if you can listen.
I am also doing a Ken Parker special after I interviewed him at his home in Miami recently. This will be a 2 hour celebration of his long and varied career.
The CD Yesteryears Recaptured by Ken Parker (Pisces) should be available on line and in record shops in the near future.
Listen to my Funky People Show Tuesdays 6.00-8.00 on www.purple-radio.co.uk and for rare soul check Sunday Soul Soup 12-2pm
