Guests, James McDonald, I-Peace Unikue and their band Eastern Standard Time are playing Supernova Ska Festival 2023! More than that, they’ll also be backing up Sister Nancy and Dr. Ring-Ding!
Eastern Standard Time joins JJ and Matt to tell us what it’s like infusing traditional Ska with non-traditional amounts of Jazz- and finding the right balance over their nearly 30 years together. We get into the nuances of playing Ska-Jazz, and also, when things get too far out.
