Detroit’s island-jazz eclecticists, the Articles, have fused the extended-ska sensibilities of Jamaican greats the Skatalites with classic jazz DNA courtesy of Messrs. Coltrane, Davis and Monk, to create a hybrid that makes not only intuitive musical sense, but will also set your feet and hips to moving and swaying. Whether it's originals or classic gems from the above-cited giant steppers, the Articles pull it off with a panache and sense of musical adventure most folks working the ska or jazz circuit haven’t the brains or musical brawn to deliver.
