JUMP IN THE LINE / A TRIBUTE TO HARRY BELAFONTE

 
Description:

Donovan says: ‘I knew one day I would make a ‘Covers‘ album of another artist’s work, it took me a while, Harry is a natural choice for me‘.
When asked why Harry he says: ‘There is a simple connection of Roots Folk Music, and after a young fascination with Jazz when we first began, Harry and I chose to sing Folk Music And not just any Folk Music, but songs of Freedom and Social Justice.
‘I saw in Harry and I, a natural and committed understanding of how an artist can dive deep into Roots Music of Jazz and Folk, and change the content of the Pop Music World with important lyrics and Social Commentary‘.
Donovan’s new album has 8 Belafonte classic songs plus 2 new songs. One written by Donovan titled NO HUNGER which is a direct UNICEF APPEAL for donations. Donovan says: ‘Harry was a UNICEF AMBASSADOR, and my tribute cover album to Harry is to remind the new generations artists to include in your work, Social and Ecological Issues to help save our Planet for the future children of the world‘.
The other new song is JAMAICA TIME, written by Wayne Jobson (Co-Producer of 7 tracks on this album), the song highlights Jamaica’s positive music influence on the world. Jobson, an expert on Jamaican Music History, says:‘Donovan was first in The 1960’s to bring into his recordings Jamaican influences on his breakthrough Mento Music Hit Record ‘THERE IS A MOUNTAIN’ (1967), which featured Jamaican Jazz Flautist Harold ‘Little G‘ Mc Nair, and Donovan also recorded the first Reggae Fusion track RIKI TIKI TAVI (1970) where Donovan anticipated the Reggae Music Explosion into Pop music‘.
