Ziggy Marley – Fly Rasta

      David Jeffries: Coming up on his third decade of making music, Bob Marley’s eldest son Ziggy had already climbed the charts with a series of reggae-pop hits before doing some of that mid-career wandering that artists often do, going off on pleasing larks such as children’s albums (2009’s Family Time) or a return to rootsy reggae (2011’s Wild & Free). All the while, he watched his younger brothers Damian and Stephen launch the 21st century electro-roots revolution, but rather than join their fray, his superior 2014 effort Fly Rasta finds him acting as the Marley kids’ proud elder statesmen. Here, he’s able to bundle his past into an album that’s a welcome combination of comfortable and vital, kicking off with the very jam band “I Don’t Wanna Live on Mars,” a playful number that punches and high-kicks before sliding into a funky groove that recalls Ziggy’s old crew, the Melody Makers. … Fly Rasta lives up to its title as it sits on Ziggy’s top shelf.
