Publishers try to even score

Jamaica’s music has long suffered from the lack of music scores. And the deficiency is even more striking when the much larger number of books which chronicle the development of Jamaican music is taken into consideration.

A score is a copy of a musical composition in proper music notation so that it can be read, and hence played, by singers and musicians anywhere. This would have great significance for Jamaica, as although reggae and dancehall have made great strides worldwide they would become still more accessible, marketable and hence profitable.
