KING DJANGO's ROOTS & CULTURE re-release! The original Hebrew ska/reggae album!

Originally released in 1998 on Triple Crown Records, KING DJANGO’S “Roots & Culture” brilliantly pairs musical and blood families in a titillating twist of traditional Hebrew folk, klezmer, reggae, ska, and dub. Recorded at the original Version City studios with King Django as head engineer, featuring members of the Stubborn All Stars, Skinnerbox, The Toasters, The Slackers, and the New York Ska Jazz Ensemble, this all-star cast laid down superb traditional Jamaicans rhythms through which luminaries like Klezmer mandolin/clarinet player Andy Statman and The Klezmatics own violinist Alicia Svigals resonate the sound of ancient and modern day Jewish music. These original tracks have been remixed and remastered, sounding better than ever! If that wasn’t enough, two bonus tracks have been added. Collaborators include Agent Jay, Dave Hillyard, Dave Hahn, Victor Rice, and Vic Ruggiero. And ya gotta love the Hebrew versions of SPECIALS and MADNESS songs!!!! This is an all time classic finally back in print with JUMP UP and STUBBORN Records!

Swing Ska! Dr Ring Ding presents BLACK CAT ZOOT!

Calling all Chicks and Cats! It’s time to swing and skank to Germany’s hottest live act! Turn back the clock to the Swinging Forties and Fifties, add some Jamaican Ska to the mix, and in a nutshell you have BLACK CAT ZOOT! Formed in 2001, Black Cat Zoot has spent the past 5 years perfecting their unique swing-ska sound, playing over 60 live shows in Germany, Austria, and Italy alone! It’s no surprise that BCZ quickly came to the attention of the legendary DR RING DING, who offered to arrange/produce their debut album “Main Attraction”. DR DING DING was so enamored by the band’s energy and beautiful female lead vocals (in the vein of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald), that he picked up his trombone – grabbed a microphone – and joined in! Black Cat Zoot’s songs capture the listener instantly, dance floor friendly tunes with peppy tempos, catchy horns, and flirty vocals. Imagine you’re in a speakeasy, watching a hot cabaret show while sippin’ on bathtub gin! If that’s too long ago - how about a more recent memory - those crazy 90s when radio was filled with happy songs from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Save Ferris, Reel Big Fish, and The Toasters? Fans couldn’t keep up! Swing and ska shows galore! Clubs were all filled with lindy-hopers, venues crammed with sweaty teens dancing to ska! It’s like that all over again with BLACK CAT ZOOT! Sounds you have come to know and love once again by way of huge revivals in the USA. Now that the hype has come and gone, bands can once again concentrate on playing the music they LOVE for people who LOVE the music! Swing! Ska! BLACK CAT ZOOT is here to make you DO THE DIRTY DANCE!

Swing and Ska to Black Cat Zoot at MYSPACE!
