“The Bradley Years”

The Bradley Years represent the definitive collection of steelband music arrangements and performances for a large steel orchestra. This collection showcases seven classic arrangements from the master arranger Clive Bradley.  Bradley is considered to be the best steelband music arranger ever by many, including his peers.  In addition, the arrangements are performed by one of the finest steelbands in the world, New York’s Pantonic Steel Orchestra. Clive Bradley had a very special relationship with Pantonic.  This orchestra clinched the title of panorama champions five times in seven years - performing Bradley’s musical works.  The performances were captured by Basement Recordings days before, and in one instance, mere moments before they took the stage for the prestigious annual steelband music panorama competition. 

The recordings capture, reproduce and present an unrivalled clarity with sonic realism, of a large steel orchestra fielding between one hundred and one hundred twenty musicians - unlike any other steelband music recordings in its class.

This body of musical work is a sterling addition for all fans, educators, players, historians and fine music collectors.

NYU Steel Ensemble 2017 Spring Concert: Beyond Talk
Walking the Walk
with Special Guests Victor Provost and Pan Evolution Steel Orchestra

NYU Steel performs at its 2017 Spring Concert

New York, USA - ....Maybe it was the threat of more rain—after days of the same continuously—on another dreary day that looked more like the beginning of March, than the beginning of the Summer gateway, May, in the Big Apple. Or maybe it was that retrograde feeling that appears to be taking cues out of David Rudder’s “Madness” that seems to have the world in its grip these days.

Whatever the reason for the lowering of the apparent world happiness index, the annual NYU Steel Spring Concert was on time and just what the doctor ordered. A serious reprieve from that red banner across the screen screaming Breaking News.

The doors opened a little after 7:00 p.m. to let the sizable crowd lined up outside, into the Frederick Loewe Theatre on the NYU campus. Within minutes the theatre reflected near-capacity - to be later completely filled with some of the late arrivers on this Friday evening.

Andy Akiho performs at BRIC, downtown Brooklyn

New York, USA - Recently while a significant portion of the global steelpan community was fully engaged with the happenings and grand performances of Trinidad and Tobago’s national Panorama competition—the greatest percussion event on earth and Super-Bowl of Pan—New Yorkers were treated to the artistic brilliance of two of the finest young composers/arrangers gracing the steelpan music art form today. When Steel Talks (WST) witnessed Andy Akiho and Andre White showcase and perform some of their musical genius live in collaboration with The Knights at BRIC’s Media House in downtown Brooklyn, New York.

 Steel band in Harlesden fight for survival as trustees dissolve charity

St Michael and All Angels Steel Orchestra (SMYP)

Harlesden, London, U.K. - Members of the St Michael’s Youth Project (SMYP), home to St Michael & All Angels Steel Orchestra, heard the charity was dissolving in a Sunday sermon address to parishioners on April 30.

Rev Ron Herbert, vicar of St Michael & All Angel in Hillside, Stonebridge, stepped down from the trust in January but continues to act as its treasurer.

He said: “I’m afraid I jumped the gun. I announced it before it happened and before I should have announced it, so I caused a problem unnecessarily. It has now been dissolved. I’m not going to say more at this point.”

The orchestra, which won best band at the Notting Hill carnival last year, was evicted from the church last October, where it has been based for 20 years.

2017 Trinidad & Tobago Panorama Review - the Good, Bad and Ugly

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The 2017 Trinidad and Tobago Panorama season—and by extension the Carnival season—was a tumultuous one that was overflowing with enough drama, intrigue, passion and controversy to field a season of Scandal, Empire or Game of Thrones. But in the end there was the music. An abundance of great music created by the finest arrangers, and outstanding performances delivered by the best steel orchestras in the world.

Two songs captured the imagination of Trinidad and Tobago for this 2017 Panorama and Carnival season - “Full Extreme” by Ultimate Rejects and “Good Morning” by Peter Ram. In fact, “Good Morning” became sort of the de-facto “test piece” as no other tune of choice has endeared itself to the steel orchestras as much in recent times. However, on closer inspection Bunji Garlin & Machel Montano’s “Buss Head” or Crazy’s “Gee Gee Ree” would be apropos to telling the complete Panorama season’s story.
