Tip #88: Listen to Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari

We recently came across this amazing David Katz piece on Count Ossie, one of the most important figures in Jamaican music history. A deep, surprising, and fascinating story, it reminded us that we really needed to check out Soul Jazz’s reissue of Tales of Mozambique, a sprawling masterpiece that defies expectations and definitions. Recorded in 1975 by a collection of righteous mystics on their home turf, “Tales of Mozambique” is a tour of every corner of Jamaican music and we can’t say enough about the melodies, the grooves, the rhythms, the lyrics. Peep it! Spotify link here.
