Musical Tribute to The Cool Ruler (1951-2010).
Known for his distinctive voice and stage presence, Gregory Isaacs was an enduring part and parcel of the development and export of reggae music, starting in the post independence era of the 1960s, through the 1970s and 80s, up until the time of his death.
A New York Times article once described Mr Isaacs as “the most exquisite vocalist in Reggae”. Cat Coore, the guitarist and cellist for the seminal reggae band Third World, has called Mr. Isaacs “the Frank Sinatra of Jamaica” for his elegant vocal phrasing.
