Anyone familiar with the American Reggae and Ska scene has already heard the work of the musicians in the BROOKLYN ATTRACTORS. The group’s core line-up consists of New York City Reggae and Ska veterans, LARRY McDONALD, EDDIE OCAMPO, BIG DAN JESSELSOHN, BUFORD O’SULLIVAN, JUSTIN ROTHBERG, as well as Anant Pradhan and Luke Penella, two emerging musicians on the NY Jazz scene. The group was created by Westbound Train trumpeter and Void Union co-founder RICH GRAIKO in 2011 as a way to pay homage to 1960′s era Jamaican and American instrumental music.
The ATTRACTORS enlisted several friends from the NYC Reggae community to guest on their forthcoming record GOOD EVIL ALCHEMY, making it an instrumental Reggae tour de force, not to be overlooked by discerning fans of Jamaican-influenced music. Featured guests on the record include Kevin Batchelor, Dave Hillyard, King Django, Ray Jacildo, Scott Flynn, Gideon Blumenthal, and Jack Wright. These tracks are pure Jamaican Jazz bliss, bringing to mind THE SKATALITES, SOUL VENDORS, TOMMY McCOOK & THE SUPERSONICS, ERNEST RANGLIN, and RICO RODRIGUEZ. 11 tracks on CD (limited to 250 copies) and 9 tracks on LP vinyl, available on WHITE or BLUE vinyl both limited to 250 copies each.
