this is indeed a splendored thing
Hey Glenroy,I echo your sentiments of 2014 man.....I like the simplicity of this number ....the straight forward manner of the arrangement .....serious last lap stuff....Mr Bradley no doubt...hearing it for the first time...feels real good inside. You know for all the opinions that are expressed on these fora...about getting pan back on the road for Carnival and creating more opportunities to use the instrument year round.....I just wonder what they will be saying in twenty years or so....it is evident something has to give to keep this craft alive and viable in so far as the Mecca is concerned.
You all know why I love this piece?
Because it epitomizes what we could call "road pan"
A simple straightforward arrangement, without too many frills, yet with enough sweetness to keep you chipping along for hours.
"Going home on Carnival Tuesday night " Pan!
Las' Lap Pan.
How I miss that!
Wow Sweet Pan
The mighty Desperadoes sweet music all the time
Glenroy, Robert Diaz et al, see complete interview posted 09/02/2011 for Trinidad Tobago USA by Andreas:
BTW, Terry, I stole your Clarence Curvan article and posted it on Facebook ( you know I'm a fan of the Clarence Curvan/ Ron Berridge bands).
Hope you don't mind,
Pan music has it 's own musical niche. it doesn't have to compete with the speed and tempo of DJ driven party music to be sweet, Pan music has its own sweetness.
This is a great example.
