Prince Jazzbo

Born Linval Carter, 3 September 1951, Jamaica, West Indies. Prince Jazzbo is one of the survivors of reggae music. While he has never been as important as other 70s DJs such as U-Roy or Big Youth, it is Jazzbo who retains a charismatic personal style and a reasonably healthy following through his label, Ujama, for which he produces and occasionally records. Like many others, Jazzbo first recorded for Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One label in the early 70s. Legend has it that Jazzbo had come to Kingston from the countryside and was initially passed over by Dodd, who expected little from the skinny youth. However, Jazzbo eventually pestered his way into the studio and took the microphone. Dodd ran a backing track at random – Horace Andy’s ‘Skylarking’ – and Jazzbo delivered on the first take what was to become a monster hit, ‘Crab walking’.

For the next 18 months, Jazzbo remained with Dodd, cutting a string of flawless roots records.
