I have said this over and over again 'Robbie" has the sweetest hands on any steel pan, no one in the WORLD
has ever came close to his style of playing. This is what I call a Gift from God. His touch is captivating to the
ear and soul, he is in a class by him-self. This piece of music could never be duplicated by anyone else in
my life time, and even if the musical score is written for them to play, I don't think they can do it on the steel
pan. Perhaps someone out there can prove me wrong......then bring it on I'll be waiting. Happy Birthday
Robbie, God's Blessings
This comment is directed to the powers that be aka the Trinidad and Tobago government department of arts and cultures;;Sirs/madams; You have let a number of artistes go to their graves unrecognized for their unique contribution to the culture of the country,however past is past,its not too late to set things right,here is a perfect opportunity to announce to the world that we take care of our own put this artiste on the pedestal where he belongs don't leave it to the American president as you did with Dr Ellie Mannette,thanks to president Clinton a pan inovator has dined in the white house; as the saying goes "don't let Robert Greenidge get away there's a bag ah sugar dong dey"
I to address a comment made by Hollis Marcelle, another great pannist from Trinidad&Tobago.To me he is the best till present. I don't compare him to any other.There are many other great ones,too many to mention. Just one that come to mind that is worth listening to, FH3. Robert Greenidge is like the Michael Jordan of pan and I believe he deserves the international recognition due to him. A genius and very gifted player and musician that is # 1 and then the rest
this rendition should confirm all my previous comments about this virtuouso in pan,bring on the Kenny g,the Jackie Hendricks, the liberace or what have you, can anyone look me in the eye and tell me this guy doesn't belong in the musical hall of fame in any genure? ,but he is yet to be recognized as who he is..the Mohamed ali of steel pan...yes I said it ..THE GREATEST....
Classic Robbie G. Does anyone have him doing Dizzy's "Night in Tunisia"? He tears it up.
Your control of the instrument is great.One can sense that you came from a classical background as far as playing the PAN is concerned.For example Festival or Classical concerts. Very Nice.
People want to know if you are arraging for Desperadoes in 2012 (lol)
