Hi Andy - I had the pleasure of meeting you here in Columbia, MO last Thurs night.  I attended your master's class and came away with a lot to chew on.  I look forward to getting your new method book for double seconds as soon as it is available.

I also attended your performance with the University of Missouri Steel Band and the UM Jazz Ensemble at the Missouri Theater last night.  You were stunning.  It was really great to watch you and Skip Thompson trade solos during the performance.  Skip is our lead pan player with the Banana Oil Pan Band.  He has turned into quit a monster on pan in that last few years.  I'm sure this will always be an honor for him and a high point in his career. (not to put words in his mouth.)  I wish I could claim I play as well as he does.  Working on it.

I only regret that someone did not organize a gig for you with some of our excellent local jazz musicians.  I would have loved to see you play in a combo setting.  I don't know if that is something that you would have like, or that you can do.  Maybe there are contract issues.  I hope someone, at least, turned you on to our annual We Always Swing Jazz Series.  I did see Jon Pose at the concert, so hopefully that happened.    

I've been your fan, long enough, that several of your albums I have are on vinyl. Probably should get more current. Perhaps 8 track.  :)

Thank you for your visit and performance.  It was truly inspirational. And - once again, Happy Birthday.

You have covered every area.  It is now up to the people. I'm from POS and in my opinion, that year Skittle Bunch should have placed in the top 3.  I can still hear the sweetness of the pan which sounded like they were made of crystals.  I remember saying to myself, "Trini Panoram not there yet."

Thank you.

I am a huge fan. No, you are my favorite musician.  Coffee Street is my anthem.  Here is the comfort that you have.  The tune has endured.  Some Panorama arrangements fade and although Coffee Street did fare well at Panorama it has remained a joy to listen to with the versions by Skiffle Bunch, the original on "Fire in the engine room; the extended versions "the Passage" and "Live in South Africa".  Some things happen before their time.  I recently acquired your first album "HIdden Treasure" and my wish list is still for a recording of the set you did with Trinidad All Stars at Queen's Hall.

Hello Andy Narell,
Were you one of the members from an American Steel Ensemble that appeared as guest artiste, at the 1966 Steel Orchestra Music Festival that was held at Queens Hall in Trinbago. The tune played was "A Taste Of Honey"
I await your reply.

Hi Andy, I just want to say how much I love your compositions which I play all the time. I even have "Coffee Street" on my CD. Keep doing what you're doing and God bless!!!

Hey Andy,
The concert on WDR3, Cologne, was the best thing I heard in a long time! The pans sounded beautiful, Relator's phrasing was N-I-C-E, and the German Orchestra fitted in superbly....Did you arrange their parts as well?
Nuff Respect, bro', for the great work you do for Pan!
