Album Notes
"Based in Los Angeles the Blue Nile X-Press (BNX) have been wowing crowds live for some time. Their self-titled CD is a 4 song EP (25 minutes) that'll tell you why. Mark is soundly steeped in Reggae, having spent years woodshedding in various L.A. Reggae bands and working with artists of the stature of Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus". (THE BEAT)

"Mark Tyson and his BNX have created a highly original sound one that blends Reggae, African, and exotic eastern sounds. Tyson & Co. spring this hybrid on unsuspecting clubgoers between their excursions into more standard Reggae, Funk and Trop-Rock fare." (LA WEEKLY)

On this the second BNX release Mark Tyson teams up with Ethiopian keyboard wizard Elais Negash to bring you some slammin' rootsy-funky-Reggae-Ethiopian, truly World Music.
