Tenor Saw

Perhaps one of the most important statistics in early ragga and dancehall, Tenor Found (given birth to Clive Bright, 1966, Kingston, Jamaica) is best-known for his 1985 strike “Band the Security alarm,” a tune in line with the then-ubiquitous “Stalag 17” tempo which became one of the primary — and catchiest — strikes to emerge from reggae’s transition in to the electronic age group. Tenor Saw implemented it up with Fever, an LP that — although it didn’t include his signature tune — became a minor traditional of early dancehall, filled with basic, catchy melodies, synthesized rhythm-section parts, and Tenor Saw’s floating vocals. (The Compact disc reissue of Fever also appended dub variations of all of the initial paths.) With this kind of promising begin to his profession, it appeared Tenor Saw will be around for a while; sadly, his lifestyle was cut brief in August 1988, when he was strike by way of a car in Houston, TX, and wiped out. The record Wake the city premiered posthumously in 1992.
