Kevin Batchelor and Cedric ‘IM’ Brooks live at The Shrine in Harlem, Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 9:30pm

“Tenor saxophonist Cedric “Im” Brooks is one of Jamaica’s most adventuresome musicians.

Born in 1943 in Kingston, Brooks has the heart of a bop jazzman beating to a reggae rhythm, and his experiments with ancient rasta nyahbinghi drum patterns has led him to fuse elements of calypso, rhumba, jazz, Afro-beat, funk, Latin, and soul into a totally unique, Sun Ra-like synthesis. His first notable recordings were done with trumpeter David Madden in the late ’60s for legendary producer Coxsone Dodd.
