Since that time Jahmings Maccow has branched out from Catch-A-Fire and The Enforcers bands to become more of a Rhythm & Blues, Rock Guitar Player and a more polished Songwriter.
Quote: From Theglobalmuse.com This is probably some of the smoothest and soulful reggae music that I've heard in a long time.

Quote: From Street Beat Magazine!
Far be it from me to call myself a know-it-all, and when it comes to reggae, well, it's probably a category on Jeopardy where I wouldn't win too much cash. Yet there's something calming about that reggae beat, the chinking of the guitar chords on the 2 and the 4, that just relaxes you. Jahmings Maccow, who has been around in various shades and forms since the late 70s, offers a disc that isn't full-blown reggae either, with some R&B, jazz, even hip-hop inflections and nuances, all popping up here and there.

Talented guitarist/vocalist, Jahmings Maccow, presents a breathtaking collection of Reggae/Blues music on the album, “I.” Maccow is highly creative and his music is not only interesting but reaches well beyond its Reggae roots. The song, “Horizon Train,” weaves a reflective, laid back feel as the touching vocals draws you in with its honest and soulful appeal. Taking on a Bluesy texture, “Passing Through,” shimmers with insightful vocals, soulful guitar and organ, and a stirring walking bass riff. The title track, “I,” is a relaxed orchestrated song with strong poetic lyrics. After listening to this wonderful album, you will find Maccow has created an album brimming with profound words of life’s trials and tribulations and these words will seep into your soul. Fans of Reggae /Blues music will really enjoy the excellent songs on the CD, “I.”
