Tiny Desk (Residence) Live performance : NPR

Right this moment, proper right here, we get to peek into the decked-out lounge of producer Adrian Sherwood’s house and watch masters of reggae playfully chill. We hear Horace Andy‘s gruff tenor inform tales with 55 years of expertise, rasp and put on.

“You have to reside, reside, reside for at the moment, for tomorrow would possibly by no means come your means,” he pleads as he sings “Right this moment Is Proper Right here,” a observe on his 2022 album Midnight Rocker. After which the traces I really like finest, “My mama informed me after I was a baby, stated all one of the best issues take a short while. However mama was improper, improper, improper, one of the best issues in life come they usually go within the blink of a watch.” All of the whereas, a single snare drum and hi-hat hold the beat, and the band of bass, guitar, keyboard, sax, trumpet and cello warmly help the feelings pouring from Horace Andy.

Sitting on the precise aspect of the display is Adrian Sherwood, the vastly influential dub producer, banging out stuttered rhythms and textures. Adrian Sherwood produced Midnight Rocker, and 6 months later its youthful, dubbed-out sibling, Midnight Scorchers. Seeing all these pioneers pouring out these chill vibes for this Tiny Desk (house) live performance is a complete thrill.
