In Jamaica the Alpha Boys' School, an institution for contrarian boys and orphans, has an iconic status and the late sister Ignatius, for 64 (!) years the director and driving force of the Music Department, the embodiment of its history. 'Alpha Boys' School 1910-2006, Music In Education' is not a simple compilation album, but a tribute to an institution which for decades played an instrumental role in Jamaican musical history. In 25 tracks ranging from ska to reggae and jazz, the album introduces some of the most important old-alumni of the school: Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Vin Gordon, Lester Sterling, Johnny 'Dizzy' Moore, Bobby Ellis... For those who still haven't gotten the message: this album is essential listening!
