One of reggae’s original founding fathers, Toots Hibbert has been one of the leading figures for over four decades. Rising to prominence in the 1960s alongside greats like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, Toots’ soulful voice has earned him comparisons to Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and Wilson Pickett, making him one of the most respected and versatile artists in reggae and soul music.

On “Flip & Twist” Toots delves into his soul and r&b influences, creating a record that is as much Kingston, Jamaica, as it is 1960s Detroit.

The album’s opener “Almighty Way” is a modern day gospel soul classic. “Fool For You” finds Toots at his most vulnerable, creating a soulful ballad a la The Four Tops. Toots also tackles Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, turning the song into a contemporary reggae classic. And on “Jungle” and “Maybe You” Toots delves into dance music, building catchy melodies over catchy hip hop beats.

Quotes:

“Toots Hibbert reigns as the premier soul-shouter of reggae …” – Rolling Stone USA

“He’s the nearest thing to Otis Redding left on the planet …” – Robert Christgau
