True to his Roots

Beres Hammond brings his legendary reggae voice to Boca Raton

What with most reggae legends either deceased (Peter Tosh, Bob Marley), retired (Toots Hibbert, Leonard Dillon), or a mere shadow of what they once were (Black Uhuru, Third World), it's nice to see a living legend who's still right on the money. Beres Hammond has been regarded as one of reggae's finest vocalists for decades now, and age has added a wistful quality to his voice while taking away little of his ability, as the 2001 release Music Is Lifeproves. Although his brand of lovers' rock/reggae gained prominence across Jamaica in the 1980s, only in recent years has Hammond gained wider acceptance. That's led to headlining performances in far-flung locales, such as this week's show in Boca Raton, so maybe acceptance still awaits.
