Reggae saxophonist, and graduate of the renowned Alpha Boys School, Cedric ‘Im’ Brooks, is in hospital in the Bronx, where he was admitted last week Thursday.
Brooks was rushed to Bronx Labanon Hospital in New York where he was reportedly diagnosed as suffering from complications following a mild heart attack. He was in and out of a coma for several days, but has since been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit.
Blake up to Friday was still not awake but he was reportedly showing signs of progress.
Meanwhile, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Olivia Grange has said that she hopes that the renowned Jamaican saxophonist will recover from the illness that has left him in a coma.
“I have heard the news that Cedric has fallen seriously ill and was admitted to hospital on Monday. I am sincerely hoping that he will pull through,” Grange said in a release.
Cedric ‘Im’ Brooks is regarded as one of the most innovative saxophone players in all of reggae music. He is known for his solo recordings and as a member of The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, The Light of Saba, and The Skatalites.
