Very rare album by Cedric 'Im' Brooks, under the guise of 'One Essence'. Notable for being a true stereo mix by Errol Brown. Track titles: The printed titles on both the labels and the sleeve are incorrect. B1 as it plays is clearly 'Small Axe' but is listed as A1. Further information has come to light in the form of a press sheet on a very rare promo copy that backs the title sequence up as currently entered (13/3/14). Matrix, Runout: DSR 7234 A DT S POTTINGER.

Cedric Brooks ‘Give Rasta Glory’ (Studio One, 1977). Brooks’ first proper solo album, Im Flash Forward, is a thoroughly delightful affair. Recorded at Studio One with Sylvan Morris, there are some fine instrumental interpretations of the works of others, such as a sax cut of Freddy McKay’s ‘Picture On The Wall’ and an inspired adaptation of Junior Byles’ ‘Beat Down Babylon’, but mostly the album sees Brooks blowing hugely expressive original sax pieces over unfamiliar rhythms. Cedric Brooks ‘Africa Calling’ (High Note, 1977). Brooks’ One Essence album was recorded at Treasure Isle with Errol Brown for producer Sonia Pottinger. Along with the usual slew of drummers, Brooks was now working with guitarist Lennox Gordon, fellow saxophonist Dean Fraser, and trombonist Calvin Cameron.

Cedric "Im" Brooks (1943 – 3 May 2013) was a Jamaican saxophonist and flautist known for his solo recordings and as a member of The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, The Sound Dimensions, Divine Light, The Light of Saba, and The Skatalites. Brooks became a pupil at the renowned Alpha Boys School aged 11, where he learned music theory and clarinet. In his late teens he took up tenor saxophone and flute.

Cedric (/ˈsɛdrɪk/) is a masculine given name invented by Walter Scott in the 1819 novel Ivanhoe. The invented name is based on Cerdic, the name of a 6th-century Anglo-Saxon king (itself from Brittonic Coroticus). The name was not popularly used until the children's book Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett was published in 1885 to 1886, the protagonist of which is called Cedric Errol
