Augustus Pablo, aka Horace Swaby, was a sort of Milton Jackson of reggae's melodica, as proven with Java (1969), Iggy Iggy (1969), East Of The River Nile (1969), Lovers Mood, Hot And Cold, and many others.

Pablo played different keyboard instruments on his first milestone recording, the instrumental album This Is Augustus Pablo (1973), and perfected his style on Ital Dub (1975).

a collaboration with King Tubby led to the hit Baby I Love You (1975) and the seminal album King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown (1976), which is mostly devoted to dub versions of Pablo's compositions.

East of the River Nile (1977) was probably is most daring sonic experiment.

Subsequent productions, such as Earth's Rightful Ruler (1983), which adds vocals to his instrumental textures, were relatively mediocre.

Jah Inspiration (Recall) is a double-disc anthology.

Pablo died in 1999.

Augustus Pablo, nome d'arte di Horace Swaby, era una sorta di Milton Jackson della melodica nel reggae, come dimostrato su Java (1969), Iggy Iggy (1969), East Of The River Nile (1969), Lovers Mood, Hot And Cold, e molte altre tracce.

Pablo suonò diversi strumenti a tastiera nella sua prima pietra miliare, lo strumentale This Is Augustus Pablo (1973), il cui stile è perfezionato su Ital Dub (1975).

Una collaborazione con King Tubby diresse il successo Baby I Love You (1975) e il seminale King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown (1976), che è perlopiù devoto alle versioni dub delle composizioni di Pablo.

East Of The River Nile (1977) era probabilmente un audace esperimento sonico.

Le produzioni seguenti, quali Earth's Rightful Ruler (1983), che aggiunge voci alle sue tessiture strumentali, erano relativamente mediocri.

Jah Inspiration (Recal) è un'antologia doppia.

Pablo morì nel 1999.
