"Jamming" is a song by the reggae band Bob Marley & the Wailers from their 1977 album Exodus. The song also appears on the compilation album Legend. The song was re-released 10 years later as a tribute to Bob Marley and was again a hit, as in the Netherlands, where it was classified in the charts for 4 weeks. In Jamaican patois the word jamming refers to a getting together or celebration. It is still receiving moderate airplay from adult alternative stations.
Bob Marley's wife Rita Marley has performed the song during the tribute concert "Marley Magic: Live In Central Park At Summerstage". Marley's children Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers have performed the song during their concerts. Their live version of the song appears on the concert CD/DVDs Live Vol. 1 and Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers Live. The song contains the line, "No bullet can stop us now". On December 3, 1976, Marley was shot by unknown gunmen who had broken into his home.
Master Blaster (Jammin'), a Stevie Wonder song intended as an ode to Bob Marley (particularly inspired by Jamming).
