And speaking of new albums, Thespy winner Donald 'Iceman' Anderson, who is headlining this month's Basil Dawkins offering My God Don't Wear Pajamas, has released his debut solo comedy album, a 14-track disc dubbed Breadfruit Tree. "The album is a timely political satire that sets out to make the listener laugh," Anderson says. "[You are] guaranteed to have a much better day after listening to this album."
A new exhibit, Explorations II, centred on the twin themes of religion and spirituality, has just opened at the National Gallery of Jamaica, and will be on view through March 2014.
UPDATE: The lineup for next month's Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival is nearing completion, with Grammy winners Chrisette Michele (pictured, at right), Aaron Neville and Toni Braxton among the acts already confirmed to rock the mic on the mainstage. The festival is scheduled to run from January 30 to February 1 at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium at Greenfield.
