1 - HILLYARD, DAVE -& THE ROCKSTEADY 7- - FRIENDS & ENEMIES - (CD) 
BRIXTON


The thick, full sound of this album is uncompromising in both the power and authenticity of its Jamaican rhythms and the adventurous jazz of its solos. Its far from the cocktail lounge sound of most Jamaican jazz hybrids and far from the spastic twists of most contemporary American ska.

2 - HILLYARD, DAVE -& THE ROCKSTEADY 7- - GET BACK UP ! - (CD) 
BRIXTON


Tenor and soprano saxophonist, David Hillyard is one of the innovators of the American ska scene. His group, the Rocksteady 7, mixes instrumental Jamaican "roots" rhythms ala the Skatalites, Burning Spear, and extended jazz improvisation ala David Murray, Charlie Haden, and Pharaoh Saunders.His new cd GET BACK UP! is a blinding tour de force of his Jamaican Jazz conception. The title track evokes the power of Coltrane's Love Supreme and is a screaming triumph over adversity. Through the baldhead reggae of "Death Ride", to the Brazillian Bingi, "a Purange", and a confident ska version of the 60s classic, "Sunny", Dave and his friends are at the top of their game.

4 - HILLYARD, DAVE -& THE ROCKSTEADY 7- - UNITED FRONT - (CD) 
BRIXTON


Bandleader, composer and saxophonist David Hillyardhas done more to advance the mix of reggae and jazz with this new cd than any number of big names in jazz who have tinkere with the Jamaican sound. And in terms of anyone anywhere playing instrumental ska and reggae today, credit Hillyard and his band with cutting the competition.The 11 tunes filling this hour-long recording cover a huge range of musical styles.  "Baby" sounds like a ska romp worthy of the original incarnation of the Skatatlites.  "Far East"sounds like a "free jazz" improvisation on the exotic theme of Duke Ellington's "Caravan". "Percussion Procession" has a bit of a Count Ossie "Grounation" groove going

5 - HILLYARD, DAVE -& THE ROCKSTEADY 7- - WAY OUT EAST - (CD) 
BRIXTON


"Improvise and Overcome" is the motto of saxophonist David Hillyard. He has had many ups and downs in his 20 year music career but his musical vision has endured; a burning mix of jazz, reggae, ska, and African percussion. His solos soar like a kite on a windy day. They dart to and from, exploring the different colors of the music, reveling in the sunshine of his rhythm section. This free spirit is captured in this live cd, recorded on his 2004 European tour.
