The cd "One Day At A Time" is the promising and powerful debut album by David Morrison aka Star of David. But David Morisson ain't no rookie in Reggae-music.

Star of David (David Morrison) was born in Montego Bay on 15th September 1957, in the parish of St. James, Jamaica. As a youth David was influenced by singers like Dennis Brown and Bob Marley. He also had a tenacious love for soccer. David received a scholarship for soccer to St. Elizabeth Technical in Santa Cruz, JA. Later he was a member of the Montego Bay Boys Club as starting left back. Davis Morrison began singing with sound systems which regularly performed in Montego Bay. In 1972, Star alongside childhood friends A.J. Brown and Denny formed a vocal trio called The Velvets.

David Morrison moved to New York in 1977, and together with Luther McKenzie he formed a group called Sons Of Creation in 1978, with David himself being the lead singer. The band moved to Miami in 84' and changed the name to Sudden Impact. Back in 1996 he auditioned for The Abyssinians (of "Satta Masaganna" and "Declaration Of Rights" fame) and he has been prominent member ever since.

The album is produced and mixed by Million 7 Sounds and Celebrity Hornz from Santa Cruz, California USA. This production-unit already made a big impression with their first release (Luv Fyah & Million 7 - "Ethiopia We Belong") and continue to spread those positive vibes with their stellar productions.

So what can we say about the album of this 50+ singer? Well it contains some contemporary roots reggae including (Wicked Development" and "Jah Run Things) aas well as lovers rock ("Love Come & Go" and "Lil' Green"), tunes we all love for sure... trust me! It also contains a quite enjoyable cover of the classic song from the great soul/gospel singer Sam Cooke - "A Change Is Gonna Come" (here renamed as Change A Come). Too bad, David Morisson also tries to attract a younger audience with 'throwaway-songs' like Baby Girl (sounds like Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing") and Madalaina (if I didn't know better I'd say it's a Wyclef Jean / Santana production). Still the album contains more than enough great songs and as a bonus two nice dub versions and two instrumental versions which shows us the craftsmanship of the Million 7 Sounds / Celebrity Hornz collaboration.

If you enjoy artists like Luciano or Bushman, you should give this album a listen. I'm convinced you won't regret it!!!
