John Jack founded Cadillac Records in 1973 to independently release Mike Westbrook’s music when major labels turned their back on jazz. One of the UK’s first DIY labels, Cadillac went on to build a catalogue with albums by Ken Colyer, Joe Harriott, Stan Tracey & Mike Osborne, Dave Holdsworth, Liane Carroll Quartet, Bobby Wellins Quartet, David Murray & Dudu Pukwana among others.
Cadillac are excited to release this slab of grooviness and deep politics ahead of a full album release sometime in 2022. Groove driven steel pan and vocals by Jazz Warrior Cleveland Watkiss, set to words by journalist and broadcaster Kevin LeGendre, it is food for the feet and for the mind. The release coincides with Trinidad & Tobago Republic Day (September 24th) to emphasise its personal and political message.
