“'Grand Concourse' shows once more not only Kevin Batchelor‘s outstanding skills on the trumpet, but proves that he is equally at home in lead vocals. This album breathes the experiences of the Bronx urbanite - musically, but even more lyricswise -, evoking moods oscillating between mellow and melancholic. The sound is firmly based in classic Jamaican ska, with a good shot of rocksteady. Here and there, jazz and blues influences add extra flavor.”
