From the recording RastaJazz (A Jazz Reggae Journey)
Thematically, the song draws upon the work of Marshall Rosenberg and other nonviolent communication (NVC) practitioners. There was only time in the song to include a few initial concepts and listeners are encouraged to study further to learn how NVC works.
Although this was the third composition started for the project, it was the second last to be completed. The initial concept was to merge Ska and Latin-Jazz and in rhythmic terms this manifested as the chorus and verses being Ska, the brass section being Latin-Jazz, and the instrumental section being a fusion of the two styles. The song has a ‘pop’ structure’ though it breaks into a modified ’10 bar blues’ pattern for the solo improvisations. The song features solos from Mike Wiese on Baritone Sax’, and David Rastrick on Trumpet.
