Few things detract from a live show more than bad synthesized horns.

Burning Spear is an obvious one. Alpha Blondy. Mighty Diamonds, I think? Don Carlos (my friend is the horns leader). Who else?

Stranger Cole, maybe, but hardly anyone else.

Like Diesel already mentioned - Don Carlos,

I recently saw him in Austin at the Wildfire Reggae Festival & he had a live horn section - sounded great!

Cornel Campbell, The Jamaicans, Johnny Osbourne, Derrick Harriot and Errol Dunkley have had horns when I've seen them in the last year.

I like the Tippa Irie song, but that's a synthesizer playing the 'horn' and 'flute'.
