“One More” Show: Jimmy Cliff on David Letterman

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photo by Kevin Ornelas—

Culminating a busy week in which he kicked off the annual Celebrate Brooklyn music series with a free concert in BK’s Prospect Park, Jimmy Cliff visited the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday night. Clad in a yellow, alligator-print suit, Cliff offered an enthusiastic performance of “One More,” from his upcoming Sacred Fire album, leading the audience in a singalong for a song that we’re sure most (if not all) of them had never heard. After you’re done watching Jimmy on Letterman, check out his much more intimate performance at Miss Lily’s Variety captured by our own cameras this past December.


LargeUp TV: Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica Unplugged— “Things Ruff”

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photo and Video by Kevin Ornelas—

Amidst the covers and originals on Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica, out today after a several-months delay, are a handful of songs that see the dancehall great reinterpret reggae standards into new songs that match the feel and vibe of the original with more up-to-the-moment lyrical styles. One such tune is “Things Ruff,” an update of Jimmy Cliff’s “You Can Get It If You Really Want.” In the above clip, filmed during Vegas’ intimate performance at Miss Lily’s Variety in New York this past January, Vegas and his backup singers offer up an unplugged version of “Things Ruff.” As the tune progresses, it gradually becomes “You Can Make It,” offering an inside-out view of how one song can birth one another. Watch the video below, and check out some more of Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica unplugged performance here, here and here.

LargeUp TV: More “Sweet Jamaica” Unplugged

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photo and Video by Kevin Ornelas—

Earlier this year we brought you some clips from Mr. Vegas’ intimate January performance at Miss Lily’s Variety in New York City, where he gave audiences an early preview of what is sure to be his defining album, Sweet Jamaica. With Sweet Jamaica finally set to drop tomorrow, we’re digging some more clips from that incredible evening out of the vault. Watch Vegas perform “Alive and Well” and “Can’t Stop” (album versions of which feature Luciano and Jovi Rockwell, respectively) above and look out for more Sweet Jamaica on LargeUp tomorrow.
