http://www.panonthenet.com/articles/pan_mag/antigua-pan1985.htm  Here is an article that mentions Art Jardine who competed in Antigua playing this tune years ago.  (50s or 60s).

Nice to hear classical tunes on pan!

Cobo Jack at his best and Zephrim on double second (I believe) doing the appegios. The first great jazzy improvisor on a tenor  Emmanuel  Riley (C.J)

Hi GRJ, thanks for that, it certainly brings back memories, those photos and the Album art are treasures. Has any thought been given about preserving this history? You would think that that would be a primary consideration of a National Pan association. In the meantime, I guess it is up to aficionados like you  and this site to be keepers of the flame. Many thanks, TerryV.

Thanks Glenroy. That was certainly well worth listening. It's a bad recording, but you don't have to listen too hard to pick up the easy virtuosity of Cobo Jack.

Question: how many Sundays would it take to go through your entire collection? Don't answer, LOL!
