Tenor Saw

One of the most important figures in early ragga and dancehall, Tenor Saw (born Clive Bright, 1966, Kingston, Jamaica) is best-known for his 1985 hit "Ring the Alarm," a song based on the then-ubiquitous "Stalag 17" rhythm which proved to be one of the biggest -- and catchiest -- hits to come out of reggae's transition into the electronic age. Tenor Saw followed it up with Fever, an LP that -- while it didn't contain his signature song -- proved to be a minor classic of early dancehall, full of simple, catchy melodies, synthesized rhythm-section parts, and Tenor Saw's floating vocals. (The CD reissue of Fever also appended dub versions of most of the original tracks.) With such a promising start to his career, it seemed Tenor Saw would be around for quite a long time; sadly, his life was cut short in August 1988, when he was hit by a car in Houston, TX, and killed. The album Wake the Town was released posthumously in 1992. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

In August 1988 he was killed in , Houston, Texas, with the official cause of death determined as a case of hit and run, although other sources insist that he was murdered.He died at 21 years of age. Tenor Saw is regarded as one of the most influential singers of the early digital reggae era of the mid-1980s.

I first listened to Tenor Saw back in '88 and loved it from the very begining. I just heard his distinctive voice on the Radio and soon as I got into the office I had to look him up on Pandora. Also and Always listening to MICHAEL FRANTI and Spearhead!
