All-Star Jam at High Times Ltd. Records, Kingston, Jamaica (1994?)
This image was from an all-star jam downtown Kingston at Chinna Smith’s High Times Ltd. headquarters. I was told there was a Japanese film crew shooting some kind of reggae documentary and I should come by and check it out. By the time I got there the filming had already started and they were filming this jam. It was pretty cool to see all these people together, hanging out and playing music, I forget everyone who was there but some of those in this photo include, Stranger Cole, Winston Jarrett, Dizzy Moore, Ras Michael, Chinna Smith, Kenneth Roxborough from Wadada and others I don’t recall. I never heard anything else about the movie, what it was called or if it even came out but it was a good day hang out and soak in the vibes.
