The title indicates instrumentation and personnel and is also a bow to Dave Brubeck who was much impressed when he visited Jamaica.. This recording is probably the first Steel Band Stereo Recording. The Orchestra has reached a wide audience since its foundation in 1955, by Trinidadians and one Jamaican. It has made one previous LP, toured on the "Ascania"; in Europe winning a 1957 French Youth Festival prize, appeared in Miami and on U.S. Television - all in addition to local engagements on and off-campus and participating in a full academic life. --
