selector okunola: totally together, 1970

This week’s song choice from Okunola is perfect for the spring weather Chicago will be experiencing.

Jackie Mittoo was born in 1948 in St. Ann’s Parish, Jamaica. He was one of the founding member of The Skatalites, and released a dozen albums in the 60s and 70s.

I’ve had his instrumentals on repeat for the last few days. My advice: turn “Totally Together” up high while sitting on your back porch or balcony, crack open a beer or make a Rosalee to quench your thirst, and enjoy the sunshine. Happy weekend!
