Jump Up Calypso is Harry Belafonte’s second studio album originally released in 1961. The record went on to sell over a million copies and made it to the number 3 spot on Billboard‘s Pop chart.

Belafonte was an established all-around entertainer and actor by the time of this album, so it could be seen in a sense as a return to “roots” styles. In any case, it’s all-out calypso, with backing by the Trinidad Steel Band, and qualifies as one of his most energetic albums, even getting rambunctious at times. ~~AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger
