ALBUM REVIEW: "Noble Vibes" 

Noble Vibes

"Noble Vibes"


The biggest misconception in playing roots reggae, rock-steady, or ska, is that it's easy. Now, it may be easy-going in its casual pump and sway, but it ain't that easy. Bands like Rochester's Noble Vibes in its most excellent execution of the one-drop style adds to this confusion on this eponymous release. The band makes it look and sound so easy and breezy whether giving it its own twist on its own stuff or coping to cats like Jimmy Cliff. It's a fun record with the smoky vocals of Deannah McKenzie smoldering in the groove and texture --- I especially love the swirl and grind of that organ --- for dancing or just doing what you do. It's that easy... and noble. Dig the vibe.
