About the artist
Ray Carless is a Jamaican saxophonist whose musical career spans almost 40 years. He started out on his musical journey working with a wide variety of pop jazz reggae funk and African bands.
Groups like Cymande, ABC, Incognito, Elvin Jones, Jazz Warriors, Skatalites, Ska Cubano, Jazz Jamaica, Maxi Priest, Billy Ocean, Vin Gordon, Black Roots, Bhundu Boys, Hugh Masakela and Manu Dibango, too many to mention here but more recently with Adele on her massive Grammy winning ’21’ album.
Ray’s still active on the International touring circuit with both Cymande and The Brit Funk Association….He has a modest selection of music released under his own name and in 2017 he released a musical tribute titled ‘Moment In Time’ dedicated to his hero and great Jamaican sporting legend Usain Bolt.
That record was Ray’s personal tribute to Usain the Jamaican legendary sprinter who wanted to give the other athletes a chance and decided to stop showing them the back of his running shoes.
Check out the track on the EP ‘Moment In Time’ at www.raycarless.com where you’ll hear Ray Carless’ jazz-flavored reggae and ska riddims.
