Playing a unique jazz-influenced reggae with some ska flavouring, Jason Wilson and Tabarruk are an interesting group of musicians. On this beautiful, sunny Canada Day holiday, they open their show patriotically with a standard verse of “The Maple Leaf Forever”, and continue with a reggae/ska instrumental.

Trumpeter Nick Ali joins them for the rest of the show. The first original they play showcases Nick and reminds me of Horace Silver’s “Song for My Father”. This is followed by a mix of original tunes and Bob Marley standards: a blues, “I Don’t Want to Wait in Vain for Your Love”, “Out of Town” (featuring a great jazz guitar solo), “Here I am Baby” (nice harmony work with trombone and trumpet) and “Same Old Song”. By the time they finish off their set with Peter Tosh’s classic “Get Up Stand Up”, everyone is feeling good.
