yes certainly enjoyable and full of ENERGY!!!!   .....despite the 'outdated ' sound of the pan, if I may say so.

Personally , I think this is some of the best tenor pan soloing in a calypso format I've ever heard!

It nostalgic in some quarters to play  the corky sounding tenor, Andy Narell has done it, this may have been purposely done depends how you look and interpret the music , in my opinion you can follow the melody and structure and thats ok with me, nice discussion though,enjoy it.....

the pan is somewhat irrelevant to me when i look or listen to the skill, virtuosity, and ease exhibited. Yes, we can all agree that it could sound much better were the pan more in keeping with concert standards, however it is what it is and the reason why it is, may be debatable for a long time, or easily explained by the Professor himself (he may have borrowed the pan or it may have been damaged, or that was just the pan that he loved, etc. etc. etc.).  Me personally, I love the piece and wish that I could do that

I think it's how the mic was picking up the sound, not necessarily the pan itself.  I doubt prof would knowingly play a tenor that sounded so beat up.

I disagree, you can't judge the sound of the pan in the nineties or even the eighties by the sound of this one tenor, though I agree that this pan does sound pretty "beat" up.

This shows us how far the development of the pan has progressed in the last 20 years.  Imagine how great this marvellous talent would sound on a current-day pan.  The pan he's playing sounds honky-tonk compared to the concert sound of the current state of the art.  Nonetheless, he was away ahead of his time in his stylings, and wonderful to listen to.  What a treat!  Thanks for the video.
