Hear the new Jay Douglas single "Jah Children" with General Trees

The new Jay Douglas single "Jah Children" was mixed by Dubmatix. 

“Three years ago, I performed at a reggae festival in Toronto with General Trees as the headliner,” Says Jay Douglas about the origins of his “Jah Children” collaboration. “I was so impressed with his performance… He had the audience in his hands.

“I invited the General to Side Door Studio to put a rap on ‘Jah Children,’” he continues. “He accepted my invitation, and we played the track for him… He looked at me and smiled; it took him less than one hour to do his rap, he was so excited.”

Jay Douglas first appeared on stage in Montego Bay, Jamaica and, in the 45 years of entertaining since, has developed into an Internationally idolized musical renaissance man thanks to his wide-ranging repertoire of American blues, West Indian rhythms, and jazz standards — including fronting The Cougars, a circa-1960s/1970s R&B act which was featured on Light in the Attic’s ‘From Jamaica to Toronto’ anthology.

Nominated for a JUNO Award for ‘Reggae Recording of the Year,’ Douglas has also won NOW Magazine’s ‘Best R&B Act,’ the Annual Toronto Reggae Awards’ ‘Male Reggae Vocalist of the Year,’ and the BBPA Harry Jerome Awards’ ‘G98.7 Entertainment Award.’
