CULTURE BEAT: Marley docu snags NAACP nomination + Ziggy debuts new live album

JAMMIN’ & JIVIN’: Just in time for the holiday season, prolific singer-songwriter Ziggy Marley has dropped a new 15-track live album, Ziggy Marley In Concert. Packing a channel-surfing of genres (reggae, pop, rock), the album features spirited, freshly reimagined renditions of such timeless hits as “Tomorrow People,” “Is This Love?,” “Wild and Free” as well as new and noteworthy cuts like “Higher Vibrations,” “Beach in Hawaii” and “True To Myself.” It’s perfect for longtime Ziggy loyalists as well as those in the market for a gift for that soulful-conscious niece or nephew. Available Dec. 18 on iTunes via Tuff Gong Worldwide. 

SCREEN SENSATION: On the heels of a recent Grammy nod for its terrific, reggae-spiked soundtrack, the acclaimed Marley documentary has snagged a place among the recently unveiled nominees for the upcoming NAACP Image Awards, in the category of Best Documentary (Theatrical or Television). The other nominees are Black Wings, Brooklyn Castle, First Position and On the Shoulders of Giants: The Story of the Greatest Team You’ve Never Heard Of. The winners of the 44th Annual NAACP Image Awards will be announced during a ceremony slated for Feb. 1, 2013 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
