Blow Mr. Hornsman blow – Dean Fraser pays tribute to Dennis Brown.

Sampler

Dean Fraser - Melodies of DEBSax veteran Dean Fraser has released his first solo album in twelve years. On Melodies of D.E.B. he pays tribute to the late and great Dennis Brown, aka The Crown Prince of Reggae.

Together with producer Tad Dawkins Jr this 60-year-old saxophonist – who also serves as musical director for Tarrus Riley’s band Black Soil Band – have recorded instrumental versions of some of Dennis Brown’s greatest musical treasures, including Cassandra, Ghetto Girl, Sitting and Watching and the stunning West Bound Train.

Dean Fraser played with Dennis Brown back in the days and supported him both in studio and on tour with Lloyd Parks and We the People Band. And his interpretations of these Dennis Brown classics are well-rounded and balanced, i.e. not too slick, which can sometimes be the case with instrumental albums.
