Album Review

Jamaican guitarist Dwight Pinkney is best known for his work with Zap Pow and the Roots Radics, but with Jamaican Memories by the Score he has found a new platform for his melodic playing and steady, deep tone. A mixture of light reggae and jazz, Memories features old playing mates Ansel Collins on organ, Dean Fraser on saxophone, David Madden on trumpet, and the seemingly everywhere-at-once Sly Dunbar on drums and percussion. Revisiting well-known Jamaican standards like Gregory Isaacs' "Tune In," Delroy Wilson's "Better Must Come," Dennis Brown's "Left With a Broken Heart," Eric Donaldson's "Cherry Oh Baby," and Alton Ellis' "Cry Tough," Pinkney weaves easy, lyrical leads from his Fly-Parker (his signature Les Paul became too heavy to use regularly, particularly on-stage), resulting in a sound not unlike what fellow island guitarist Ernest Ranglin has been doing for some time now. Pinkney isn't quite as sprightly a player as Ranglin, but he has a thick, elegant tone to his lines that give these tracks a stirring and subtle depth. He also doesn't overplay, giving Jamaican Memories by the Score a real ensemble feel.
