Rarely has any rhythm section been blessed with the electrifying natural synchronicity that has always characterized drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare's ineffably appealing music. The dubwise duo first joined forces a lifetime ago in Kingston, and instantly began making significant contributions to dub and reggae during the idiom's feverish mid-'70s pinnacle. With an estimated 200,000 session and production jobs to their credit, they have never broken their momentous stride, continuing an extraordinary artistic crusade that has only increased the potency of their chronically mesmerizing skills. These critical dub spearheads have a profound, nigh on sacred dedication to the groove, and the other seven cats riding along in the Taxi Gang band are certifiable zealots with an equal measure of mysterioso dub power. Expect nothing less than an earful of downright alchemical prowess tonight.
