Desperadoes playing David Rudder's Panama at Panorama finals 1988
Join When Steel Talks
This arrangement was done by BEVERLY with ROBBIE doing the upgrade for the finals .eg.the latin part and the run in the introducton and the ending .thi ong ha more airplay on T.T.T.than any other song in steelband history.It was played approximately three times a day for years.thi i not the actual speed that the band played on final night..Extremely Great Arrangement and Performance.This is the song that inspired me to play pan.......
Just for the record, this tune was a co-arrangement of Bev & Robbie. Both previously did "Pan Night and Day" in 1985 (1st), "The Hammer" in 1986 (7th), "Pan In A Minor" in 1987 (3rd) and "Panama" in 1988 (3rd).
This is not the tempo of the band's performance at the finals. You can tell by the high pitch of the pans.
Hey there's a time for Ballads and there's a time for some serious heavy jamming - some tunes sound good at
80bpm and some tunes need to be at 136bpm ....if your brain is to busy with critical ideas you will not be able
to feel the essence of the music no matter what tempo the song is played! Hats off to Beverly and Despers.
As nice as the arrangement may be, it still sounds like it was arranged and played by "mile minute" the savanah man.
Why does every thing have to be so fast?
You loose the sutle nuances played by the double seconds and the guitar pans.
I just hope we can get back to playing music and not showing off how many notes can be played in the shortest time.
Life in general is too short
Relax! enjoy! tomorrow will come soon enough!
