"Greetings Jason (Skywalker). Good story about Melo Groove. It wonderful to see that you are still pushing the cultural scene. You need to beef up your understanding of the history of the steelpan. There are several publications out there."

Panorama Time is Bradley Time - The Great One Examined

Posted on February 2, 2009 at 9:30am 2 Comments

Global - He was simply the world's greatest steelpan music arranger. Moreover, he was the one the titans of pan bowed to. This was his stage, his arena, his moment. This was his time. Panorama was "Bradley Time." Master arranger Clive Bradley, more so than any other, shaped and elevated the music and theatre of the panorama as we know it.



We revisit a musical examination of some of the Master's works by one of the most respected and gifted music talents out of the Caribbean. Frankie… Continue

Pan Times: Ellie Mannette SAID on National TV in T&T that HE, started "Oval Boy's in 1938 when HE DID NOT which is a BIG LIE, pan was just coming out of it's dust bin phase, where Carlton "sonny" Roach had just put note's on his 1st "KLIM MILK CAN", where Oval Boy's did not really start untill 1944 evolving from "Green Eye's" another band in the Woodbrook area, while WORLD WAR II was in PROGRESS, by Ellie's older brother Milton "ossie" Mannette, his nephew Herman Gomez, and Francis Wickham, there's photo's of Ellie playing a " dud up " in 1944 with Wickham, and one where he's shaking a "shack shack", in 1947 while in Oval Boy's with Gomez, Dove, and Wickham playing ping pong/ tenor, Invaders got their name "Night Invaders" after the war ended in May of 1945, and later changed it to Invaders, and Vernon "birdie" Mannette was tuning BEFORE Ellie where Ellie never started tuning untill 1948/49, how could Invaders be celebrating their 75th Anniversary, isn't it a bit premature???

Pan Times, please pass this on to Ms. La Rose,

Ms. Miranda La Rose; Hameed Shaqq, DO NOT KNOW WHAT HE"S TALKING ABOUT, because "PYTHAGORAS" DID NOT create/invented the Cycle of Fifths, ANTHONY WILLIAMS DID in 1949/50, he Pythagoras in 500 B.C. derived/create the MATHEMICAL THEOREM, or NUMERICAL EQUATIONS which WILLIAMS used to derive the cycle of 4ths & 5ths, by the GYRATING or MOVEMENT of the "PLANETS", Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn and Uranus, Neptune and Pluto was discovered much much later after "Pythagoras" was murdered, as a student of Williams, I'm the only one he entrusted with his"DOSSIER of SCHEMATICS" et al, ect ect ect... there were other who had the opportunity to create/derive from the theorem, Nicolaus Copenicus in 1515 and Tycho Brahe in 1590, but it was only Johannes Kepler a German astronomer in 1615, where he derived the five lines and four spaces, on manuscript using "Pythagoras" first seven (7) planets and the other two (2) later discovered planets, never the less but nice try Mr. SHAQQ, the next time PLEASE get all your fact correct,
