Initially a simple rural dance music, mento in its earliest incarnations usually featured banjo, rumba box, bamboo fife, and various percussion instruments, but reaching Kingston, it urbanized into a kind of street corner Dixieland with piano, clarinet, and saxophones soon factored in, and Jamaican jazz musicians like guitarist Ernest Ranglin and saxophonist Roland Alphonso got their start in mento orchestras.

Mento gets little recognition these days, but with the Jolly Boys on tour here soon, this compilation couldn’t have arrived at a better time. This was the first Jamaica popular music, where folk tunes (Day Dah Light), spirituals (Hosanna) and ribaldry (Don’t Touch Me Tomato, Banana) meet comic story songs (Take Her to Jamaica). Supplanted at home by ska, mento was popularised abroad (though labelled calypso ) via Harry Belafonte’s cover versions of a number of the songs here. Frémeaux & Associés; out now).
