What do you call a project featuring modern Jazz/Fusion/Jam’s most ubiquitous guitarist, Roots Reggae music’s most prolific drummer, and three players from the biggest American Reggae band in the world?
Rockamovya brings together long time Jazz-heavyweight, Grammy nominated Will Bernard (Motherbug, Stanton Moore trio, Dr. Lonnie Smith), the incomparable Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace (Burning Spear, The Abyssinians, the cult film classic “Rockers”) and Ryan Newman (bass), Marcus Urani (organ/keys/piano) and Harrison Stafford (rhythm guitar/ vocals) of the internationally acclaimed Cali-based Reggae-Fusion group Groundation for what will surely be a genre-defying classic of an album.
Rockamovya is already generating a strong buzz within the more traditional music industry, as well as the ever-growing conscious music community. The expansive and altogether new sound Rockamovya emits is due in large part to the inter-generational links the album has created. Whether its Horsemouth’s 1960’s era steppers rhythms, Bernard’s 1970’s inspired jazz-funk licks, or the wholly unique 21st century roots sound of Groundation, Rockamovya reaches across demographics and genres to entice and enthral listeners of any and every tribe.
