Just a very slight correction Glen: This tune was first recorded on his 1958 LP "At The Pershing: But Not For Me".

But I grasped your intent to highlight drummer Frank Grant on the 1971 LP.

Beautiful! Amazing piece of jazz, and I just love the back and forth between the piano and pan. 

Interestingly, this tune was originally recorded at the 1971 Montreaux jazz festival with the trio featuring his great rhythm section of bassist Jamil Sulieman Nasser and drummer Frank Grant.

It is featured on the "Freeflight" album.

To all you South panmen out there, Frank Grant is the brother of one of the best six bass players I've ever known, Boy Grant, who played with us in Silvertones and was also a member of Guinness Cavaliers.

(His other brother was John Grant, a top Sando "badjohn")

Go 'GHOST"!! That's my kinda stuff!! Also worth the listen is Othello Molineaux's: "It's About Time" featuring Jamaica's  jazz pianist Monty Alexander.
