Tip the Artist
“Winds of Wareika” by The Super 20 is a horn-infested cooker that is a nod to the late, great, Rico Rodriguez. The introduction draws imagery of desolate deserts with its slow tempo and viscous horn sustains floating on top of cymbal rolls and textured bass pads. Once the tempo picks up, energetic horn lines transport listeners to the Wareika Hill in Jamaica with feelings of intrepidation and wonder. This is the title track off of the group’s debut album fronted saxophonist Lee Hamilton and producer/engineered by Craig Welsch. Both Hamilton and Welsh are luminaries in the modern dub/reggae scene and share a vision of crafting music that authentically feels good and capturing those feelings to tape.
