To be honest, I don't usually like fake Jamaican accents. UB40 and Snow make my skin crawl. But the Scottish-Canadian Jason Wilson seems sincere enough on this organic if adult-contemporaryish reggae/jazz/ballad/Scottish folk fusion album "dedicated to the Jamaican, Trinidadian, Italian, Newfie, Indian, Armenian" cultures that "unwittingly forged" Wilson's culture here in Toronto. High-calibre musicianship, too, with a bevy of talented instrumentalists including Waleed Abdulhamid.
Jason Wilson and Tabarruk heat up Hugh's Room tonight (Thursday April 15).
