Since 2012, Buddy Jay's Jamaican Jazz Band has elaborated on the tradition of Jamaican Jazz and R n' B music. The nine piece band featuring a four piece horn section moves the music forward by engaging a deep respect for the sound, and by writing original Jamaican jazz ,ska, dub reggae, calypso and rocksteady influenced tunes and performing them with tenacity. Their sound is firmly rooted in the golden era of Jamaican music; the 1960's and 1970's. When naming the band, Buddy preferred to call a spade a spade and use the words “Jamaican Jazz” instead of the usual “Ska” which is used to describe a whole myriad of styles within the genre these days. He wanted to make sure that people understood that the group was paying respect to the original artists and people who created the music, and that that was something of the utmost importance to the band.
