Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Listening to this Rudy Smith original from the 1989 DELOS album "Jazz n' Steel from Trinidad And Tobago", the thought occurred to me that this is why I do not like to use superlatives like "the greatest this" and the "best that" when it comes to artistic talent , though there are clear exceptions.
There are quite a few really great jazz panists around, but as to who is the best?
Who is the greatest?
Who knows ?
I certainly will not presume to judge.
But one thing I do know.
By any measure, Rudy "Two Lef" Smith is one extraordinarily talented panist and jazz musician.
Check this one out if you don't believe me.
