Wayne Jarrett

avatar

A brilliant and criminally unsung roots reggae singer with a high, clear tenor voice similar to Horace Andy's, Wayne Jarrett recorded his key tracks in the late '70s and early '80s, including the classic Bunny Lee-produced "Satta Dread." Jarrett also worked with Jamaican producers Glen Brown (cutting "Youthman," another classic track) and Junjo Lawes, among others. His high watermark arguably came with the six tracks he recorded for Lloyd "Bullwackie" Barnes' Bronx-based Wackies label in 1982, which were combined with their dubs to make the Showcase, Vol.
