Chezidek returns with another rock solid scorcher.

Sampler

Three years ago JahSolidRock Music blessed the world with the brilliant and critically acclaimed album 'Judgement Time' from Jamaican singer Chezidek, a set produced and recorded together with Dutch musicians Not Easy At All.

Chezidek - The Order Of MelchezedikNow Chezidek has returned with a new organic and original album on JahSolidRock. But Not Easy At All is not involved much this time. The riddim tracks are instead mainly provided by Austria’s House of Riddim, Dutch band The Skanking Monks and Ziggi Recado’s keyboard player Rekesh Dukaloo. And the result is very pleasant and highly enjoyable.

'Judgement Time' was more or less presented in a showcase style, i.e. a vocal followed by a version. This is not the case with 'The Order of Melchezedik'. It collects only two versions. The rest are vocal cuts.

More of Chezidek’s highly individual, distinct and sometimes unbalanced high-pitched vocal style. But 'The Order of Melchezedik' contains some of his finest moments as a singer and his pitch control is above his usual standard.

There is not a dull moment on 'The Order of Melchezedik' and the musicianship is first rate, particularly the horn section, the smooth guitar and the exquisite harmonies.

This is definitely a set directly aimed at the best of the year lists. It’s currently exclusively sold via the label’s website, and will be available on CD and other digital platforms around 20 April.

Great album. Have been listening to it since a week, and it has not been removed from my CD player yet.
