Saxophonist and producer Dean Fraser assembled this two-disc tribute to the late Jamaican singer Gregory Isaacs, and it features vocal versions of several of Isaacs' signature tunes sung by contemporary Jamaican vocalists, including "Night Nurse" (sung by Romain Virgo), "Mr. Brown" (sung by Jah Cure), "The Border" (sung by Duane Stephenson), and others, but the real treat here is the second disc, where Fraser turns loose his own considerable talents as a saxophonist and arranger on instrumental versions of the tunes. ~ Steve Leggett
