Baba Brooks was born Oswald F. Brooks and was a Ska trumpeter. He started out playing for Jamaican big bands before joining Byron Lee’s Band who were Island Records house band. Of course, no self respecting musician in Jamaica could have ignored the Skatalites and he played with them frequently. One Eyed Giant was a popular tune in the sixties in Manchester soul clubs.
