The SteelPan Music Fans and Players Remember
 The Master Clive Bradley
Paris, the 15th of December 2005


Calypsociation would like to send our deepest regrets for the loss of Clive Bradley.  We all know how important Mr. Bradley was to Trinidad and Tobago and the steel pan community worldwide.  Several of our members were lucky enough to meet and work with Mr. Bradley, not only was he a brilliant composer, but he was a very warm-hearted human being and his loss was a very sad moment for all of us .

For all of these reasons we would like to join and support you in this period of mourning.  We are with you in our thoughts and if there is anything we can do, please let us know.

Sincerely,



For CALYPSOCIATION,

Nathalie CLERAULT
President

Respect

 
Caribbean Beat has profiled some of the Caribbean's most brilliant pan performers, players like Ray Holman and Andre Tanker, and over the years we have followed the growing quantity and quality of pan recordings. But so far we have not explored the world that lies behind those majestic sounds, the orchestral displays that so many listeners enjoy at the Panorama competition during Trinidad Carnival, or at the World Steelband Festival, held this year at Madison Square Garden in New York. I mean the guys who write the music; who take simple melodies and elaborate them into full-scale arrangements for the orchestras; who tune the pans and give each orchestra its own distinctive sound.

But that's something we have to do soon. Last weekend, we lost one of the great arrangers, Clive Bradley, who had worked for decades with various steel orchestras and above all with Desperadoes, the legendary band from on top of "the Hill" (Laventille). Despers is the only band with ten Panorama championships to its name, and Bradley had quite a bit to do with that.

Clive Bradley's genius lay in the fact that he knew exactly which soca or calypso melodies would sound best on pan (mostly, those of the late lamented Lord Kitchener), and he also knew exactly how to develop and elaborate them so that they could transcend pretty much every other Panorama arrangement. He had worked with Despers long enough to know exactly how to get the best effects out of the players and their instruments.

I have listened to Panorama for 33 years now, and for sheer musicianship and effectiveness I don't think Bradley's best work has ever been surpassed. It was never "surface" music, written for show and for easy impact; there was always meat in it too, always intelligence and substance, and at his best he could send shivers down anyone's spine. Clive Bradley showed everyone just what pan could be.
 
HOMAGE TO A GENIUS

How and where do I start to pay homage to a genius?
His Majesty Clive Bradley to me was a musical God. He touched my soul with every note that emanated from his sounds.
The Pan Fraternity will never ever be the same, sorry to say but there is no one in this life time to replace him. The World at large is a better place because of him, he has left for us in his will the treasures of all his beautiful melodies.

The Angels in heaven are again rejoicing because their Prodigal Brother has returned to their musical symphony, our loss is their gain. We are very lucky as Pan People to share his musical creations, his music will live on or generations to come and help soothe the pain we all share of the greatest loss in the Pan World.

We should honor him by naming the Panorama Competition (The Clive Bradley Challenge Trophy). Peace-Love and Blessings to Brados. Farewell (We Love You).

His music enriched my life, encouraged me to play and taught me how to listen. Truly a legend that should be recognized as such. I feel blessed to have been here during his time, to bear witness to greatness as it unfolded.

My condolences to Mr. Bradley's family and loved ones. His music has touched many lives and will continue to be a source of inspiration and joy for generations. Thanks Clive ....you will always be remembered.

My thoughts go out to everyone affected by Clive's death and to his family. I learn't alot last year playing his music. Pan won't be the same again.
From: GospelPan Sent: 11/26/2005 5:56 PM
I am deeply saddened.
 
There will never be another Clive Bradley because he was unique and his music was unique. I had been after Bradley for thirteen years to come and arrange for the Church but it wasn't meant to be and every year we'd laugh about it...even this year, the day before Panorama. He couldn't stop laughing when I told him I'd be playing in the Panorama this year, but who would've known it would be his last victory in New York.
 
Life is so unpredictable; Bradley had so many plans and ideas that he never had the chance to finish because death took him. But his music and his joyful personality will live on in my heart and memories of us working on music at the computer will not soon be forgotten. He had his challenges in life as do we all, but I believe that he's in a better place, participating in another kind or orchestra; a heavenly one.

Clive Bradley was the giant that other giants looked up too and wanted to be.  He is simply the Master.

I am a member of STVYSO and I heard the news yesterday from another of my band members who had had the pleasure of playing with Pantonic for a couple of their NY panoramas. I was looking forward to coming up next year to share in the experience of working with the master. I am truly a fan of his works and I am saddened by the news. However I believe that all of those who have worked with him will continue to honor him by playing his arrangements.
 
My condolences go out to Mr. Bradley's family -- immediate and extended. He touched the souls of many. Rest in peace.

Few have touched as many lives as the Master Clive Bradley.  His ability to connect with his audience is legendary.  For me he was the best.
From: noah_mustion Sent: 11/27/2005 11:38 PM
Right now I am listening to Action by Desperadoes at T&T finals in honor of the man. The minor key jam gives me chills.

He was the master of the walking bassline... the tone of Desperadoes' basses fit his basslines perfectly. The way he would manipulate a mode so it would simultaneously appear minor and major is unique... see Music in We Blood with Despers or Mind Yuh Business with Nutones for example.

To the sweetest arranger, who could do so much without even playing pan himself... rest in peace.

I last saw Clive Bradley in Pantonic and D'Radoes panyards and we discussed some pan ideas. I knew Clive since his jazz days playing bass and arranging for Esquires combo.Little did I know that it was to be my last meeting with this great icon of the pan world. I hope Pantrinbago honor his memory by creating an award in his name. I suggest The Clive Bradley Arranger's Trophy for the best arranger in Panorama. So long Clive you are the greatest. What do the panjumbies think?
From: thenextphase Sent: 11/29/2005 11:08 AM
Bloody brilliant idea mate! A Clive Bradley trophy for best arranger/arrangement could be a great first step towards doing away with the severely flawed system of awarding first, second and third prizes, etc.
There could also be an award for best performance, people's choice, and best composition (composed strictly for pan), etc., etc.
The seeds have now been planted, so all pan lovers around the world, who often have dissatisfaction with panorama judging, take up this ball and run with it.
As for Clive, just like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, John Coltrane, Bird, etc., before him; Clive lives through his works - the music he selflessly shared with us all.

HERE WE ARE AGAIN, KICKING OURSELVES IN THE BUTT. STEEL BAND ORGANIZATIONS
HAVE NEVER NEGLECTED THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE ART FORM,
WHETHER THEY WERE ALIVE OR DECEASED. ITS A PITY THAT WE DONT DO ENOUGH WHEN
THEY ARE ALIVE. AND PAN PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GRACIOUS TO EACH OTHER. TO
BE SURE THERE ARE A LOT OF NEGATIVE OBSERVATIONS FLOATING AROUND ABOUT CLIVE
BRADLEY. ONCE AGAIN LETS BE GRACIOUS TO ONE OF OUR OWN AND RELATE TO THE
BETTER THINGS THAT HE HAS DONE FOR PAN MUSIC. A TROPHY ..YES
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR DESPERS PLAY ONE OF HIS OLDER ARRANGEMENTS. (LIKE
MARGIE) GOOD BYE CLIVE.

As a young boy growing up in Diego Martin I could remember Clive Bradley as Teacher Bradley from his days teaching at Diego Martin Boys R.C. school this was in the early 60s back then you could tell he was a genius in the making.....here's a quote from George Kallicharan aka 'Yoyo' taken from Trinbagopan.com in it's Tribute to the Legend Clive Bradley .
 
"My name is George Kallicharan aka 'Yoyo' and I live in Diego Martin. I am a pan tuner and eveybody knows me in the pan world as 'Yoyo'. Originally I am from Point Cumana Boys Town. Boys Town was the band that won the first steelband music festival.
 
I used to tune and arrange for a band called 'Melo Stars', and during that time I used to see Bradley around with his guitar. One day I called Bradley and I ask him to come and try something with the band. He decided to come and he did 'Stardust' and 'I Who Have Nothing'. We rocked Port of Spain Carnival Monday and Tuesday with those tunes. The talk spread when they realize that Bradley was the man who made it happen. After that Bradley worked with other bands.
 
The first band Bradley arrange for was from Diego Martin. Bradley's music was excellent and he was a genius. I haven't seen any arrangers who are in the same class as Bradley and 'Boogsie' Sharpe. It will take a long time before anyone can fill Bradley's shoe. You cannot replace Bradley. You have to be dedicated, you have to love it and you have to give your life to it. For instance, I am a pan tuner and I have been tunning and playing pan all my life."
 
My thanks to When Steel Talks for this forum, you have taken the artform to another level keep up the good work.

Comments If there was one man that always give our band arun for our money, I would have to say it was Mr.Bradley. What I liked about it was that the results were nearly always very close. As much as we all rant and rave about the results every year, we enjoy the competition, we live for that 10 minutes of glory on stage. With that said I want to send my condolence and blessings to Desperadoes, D'Radoes, Pan Tonic, and the whole of Clive Bradley's family and friends. Bradley will always be missed and thanks for the years of friendly competitions.

Comments As a family mamber of Clive Bradley (nephew) I would just like to tell those of you who sent your condolences that I am grateful for them. In a legend's death there will always be someone or some people who try to take us away from our goal of bringing the pan to a higher level. I would just like to give scenario on the day of his passing someone called me (you know who you are) to ask me "What are you going to do now?"the person is a member of casym.But instead of getting upset i answered the question. In life there will always be assholes and fools but how you treat the Asshole will always be a vital part of your reputation.Thanks for your condolences and Jah bless Kadeem Trini Alleyne

Also how about a database of info on pannists, tuners, arrangers, pan builders and leaders of bands who do sterling work in the pan community, outside of TnT, whose names are not in lights! People like Goat, Cobo Jack, Ancil Joseph, Two Left, Gerald Forsyth et al.
