Wha Gwaan - Jah Cutta & Determination

Stomp Lion

It takes more than a ‘one-drop’ beat to make real reggae. You have to start with real ingredients like real drums, real horns and real soul. For twenty years Jah Cutta has been hand- crafting the real deal with his band mates in Determination. His respect for the music and his reputation as a ferocious performer have earned him a place on stages before reggae royalty, like Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Buju Banton and, most recently, Toots and The Maytals. In the liner notes to his new album, ‘Wha Gwan’, Jah Cutta had a lot of important people to thank. That’s because he wasn’t going to be satisfied until the tracks rang true with the finest performances from some of reggae’s finest players. The CD boasts Dean Frazor on sax, backing vocals from Brian and Tony Gold, a duet with the great Luciano and production by Bobby Digital. Recorded in Canada and Jamaica over five years, it was a labour of real love. Respect. Key Tracks: Staff Of Life featuring Luciano, Chat Fi Dem, Right Track featuring Dean Frazor.
