CHALIWA - New Zion Trio
The next phase!!! "CHALIWA" is the second full length from Kingston's New Zion Trio. Featuring Jamie Saft on piano and Fender Rhodes, Brad Jones on acoustic bass, Craig Santiago on drums, and special guest H.R. Human Rights, legendary vocalist of Bad Brains, on "Chant It Down." This next release continues the thread from New Zion Trio's successful debut album "Fight Against Babylon"- Forward Roots Reggae and Dub filtered with the sounds of the Spiritual Jazz of the 70's forged in the style of the traditional Jazz Piano Trio. Recorded and mixed by Saft entirely on analog tape at Potterville International Sound, "Chaliwa" is sonically next level. Booming bass tones anchor this Dub epic. Sprinkle with lock tight drumming, fluid piano, and deep sonics and you have "CHALIWA." 9 fresh tracks, conceived in a 14 day burst of creativity, captured on glorious analog tape to bring the true sound of Roots Reggae and Dub. Featuring hand inked art by NZT drummer extraordinaire Craig Santiago in a 4-panel Green Forestry Wallet (100% Green Forestry Practices!) - More Fire!!!
