"The pan world is big enough for Duvone and Boogie and Pelham and all the other fine arrangers. The judges will decide on the big night after the sifting process today.
But there is something more than just winning in this annual pilgrimage- it…"
"He was a brilliant man and writer. As is so often the case with genius or near genius, it seems he was what people would call"difficult". He had no patience for mediocrity( or what he perceived to be such) and showed this…"

"I cannot support the suggestion to have all the bands play the same set of instruments. The difference between the competitors lies in part in the different tuning of the pans. To have all competitors play on the same instruments would…"
