No Jamaican singing duo has enjoyed a comparably resilient, prolific, and successful partnership as Keith Rowe and Phillip “Tex” Dixon. Following their critically acclaimed 2017 album “Freedom” follows the same successful formula; again produced by Sanchez, the album combines sweet, soulful, melodic harmonies, and mature lyrics with the masterclass musicianship of Sanchez and his band, stunningly recreating the authentic sound Jamaican music studios produced in the 1960s and 70s. As with any productive collaboration, their additional experience together and time spent complementing each other has only sharpened the final product. Moreover, Keith & Tex are only getting better with age—making “Freedom” shine like perhaps no other album yet in Keith & Tex’s extensive discography. Not only is Keith & Tex’s “Freedom” an album that should be in every collection, it’s a masterful work of art that should be experienced, enjoyed, revisited, and kept close—to the heart, mind, soul, and music player. To be played—often.
