The Uppertones – Easy Snapping
Format: LP
Label: Jump Up Records
Releasedatum: 20 maart 2020

The Uppertones is a powerful trio of trombone, vocals, piano, & drums leaded by the great Mr.T-Bone and dedicated to the sound of the 50’s in Jamaica, the Jamaican R’n’B, Jamaican boogie, calypso, & mento.

The kick start to homegrown Jamaican music in the 50s came from American rock’n’roll and R’n’B (rhythm & blues).

At that time it was the birth of Ska, which originated Rocksteady, Reggae etc. This trio aims to please crowds with a stompin’ swing style mixed with the Jamaican edge and style.

Chicago! March 2020 is the time for their third album ‘Easy Snapping’ a selection of classic tunes never recorded by the band before and it has been released by the Chicago’s finest label Jump Up Records.
