Whew.. shivers. From the moment Rochelle Bradshaw uttered that first line my skin erupted with goosebumps. “Jammin” has always been my favorite Marley tune and this jazzy and soulful rendition only affirms that. The laid back rhythm laid down by Yaniv Taubenhouse on that bright grand piano takes the down-tempo reggae riddim from a hot beach in Jamaica to a smokey jazz bar in NYC.

Rochelle really makes the song her own adding a sensuality Mr. Marley would swoon to himself. Even the videographer, Leo Smith, can’t seem to keep his camera focused and there are several moments the “gaze” drifts downward to Rochelle’s chest. Hey, who could blame him? There’s nothing sexier than a talented woman with a sultry voice.

Recorded at Crisp Recording International in 2012 as a part of a cover song series where they also performed Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed”.
