Day 218 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators - Moving Out

Yesterday we had a listen to one of Jamaica's great trombonists, let's give a little time to one of Jamaica's great saxophonists... of course we're talking about the late great Tommy McCook!  McCook was one of the founding members of the legendary Skatalites and was the director of The Supersonics, Duke Reid's studio band before branching out and recording for Bunny Lee and The Revolutionaries in the 1970s.  Today's tune "Moving Out" with the Aggrovators was recorded for the aforementioned Mr. Lee circa 1975-1977 and eventually released on CD in 1995 as the album Bionic Dub on the Lagoon label.  With mixing and engineering by King Tubby... it's a sweet tune!  P.S. I can't take responsibility for what's going on in the attached video... a little odd choice for such an upbeat tune...
