Toots & The Maytals

Origin: Jamaica

Genre: Reggae

Seminal Jamaican group Toots & The Maytals came together in the early 1960s. After oscillating between gospel, ska and rocksteady, the trio embraced a nascent genre on their their 1968 single, Do the Reggay - which marked the first time the term "reggae" was used on record. Comprised of Frederick ''Toots'' Hibbert, Nathaniel "Jerry" Matthias and Henry ''Raleigh'' Gordon, the Maytals went on to record such classics as Monkey Man, 54-46 Was My Number and Pressure Drop during the 1970s. Since then, Toots' warm and heady style has done much to turn public awareness on to the musical richness of Jamaica.
