Devon Russell began his career in 1960s Jamaica with the Tartans, along with fellow renowned flasettos Prince Lincoln Thompson and Cedric Myton. He continued as an in-demand vocalist and solo artist through the reggae, roots, and dancehall eras.

A compilation of Russel's many recorded tributes to Curtis Mayfield, "Darker Than Blue" features songs that were staples of those eras, rendered with rootsy feeling in a dancehall style, backed by a revolving cast of players that reads like a reggae hall of fame program.
