The New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble is exactly what its name suggests: a group of New York ska musicians dedicated to exploring the links between ska and jazz.
The membership is all culled from top New York ska acts, making it something of a supergroup: leaders "Rocksteady" Freddie Reiter (saxophone, vocals) and Rick Faulkner (trombone, vocals) hail from the Toasters, as does drummer/lead vocalist Jonathan McCain, guitarist Devon James comes from the legendary Skatalites, and bassist Victor Rice and keyboardist Cary Brown play full-time with the Scofflaws. The group released its self-titled debut in 1995 to excellent reviews, and reconvened in 1997 to record the follow-up, Low Blow. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
