Corey Dixon – We Wanna See A Solution

Back in the mix once again is the Happy As A Lark label. This label has continued to push authentic reggae music forward in a lot of ways, putting reggae legends together with young pugilists of the game to create beautiful music. Their short, but stocked discography is a testament of what persistence and hard work can accomplish. This one today is a killer. Put together by long time HAAL player composer, and all around talented guy Corey Dixon (The Drastics/ Zvooks), “We Wanna See A Solution” is a protest/ solidarity track for modern times. Capturing everything this protest movement has to offer at present time: hope, determination, and the will to see the human race push forward, this track (originally written as a soul tune) get the Happy As A Lark treatment with a few different versions. The roots, dub, and version variations of this track (as well as the original soul track) are heavy in their own right. We can not stop playing the roots and dub sides, so rewind selectah! Well done HAAL. The recordings feature Dixon on vocals, & guitar, Anthony Abbinanti on drums, Hammond organ, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer 200A, Clavinet I, Baritone Sax, & percussion, Chris Merrill on bass, Tom Riley on Tenor Sax & Flute, and Andrew Zelm on trombone. It’s quality and authentic music, and all the proceeds and downloads will help benefit Chicago Mutual Aid, which helps to battle homelessness and increases food resilience in communities, provides free COVID tests, PPE, and supplies to new mothers. So besides the music, they’re helping humans not just feel good with what they’re hearing, but have a better quality of life. Good vibes all around.
