The Uptones – “East Of A Western Bay” mp3

An early instrumental work by Berkeley’s Ska music pioneers, The Uptones, this ebullient punk ska jazz opus was penned by the Rev. Paul Jackson. Originally on trumpet duties at the time of the band’s founding, Jackson soon moved to Hammond Organ and before long became one of their key songwriters. “East Of A Western Bay” is the lone instrumental cut from “The Uptones Live!! 924 Gilman” CD, and it rocks.
