Phase II on stage for Panorama 2006 - WST Steelband Music Video

“A Blue Crescendo,” “Dr. Jit” and “Wild and Wonderful” are the main tunes of choice in this year’s Panorama with six plays each.  The first two are penned by Winston Scarborough, sung by De Original De Fosto Himself, while the third is an Edwin Pouchet/Alvin Daniell composition with vocals by Olatunji.

Not far behind and with five ‘plays’ each are: “Brazilian Flag Woman” composed by Amrit Samaroo and Mark Loquan and sung by Anselm Douglas; “Dangerous” - also composed by Mark Loquan, this time in tandem with Ken “Professor” Philmore, vocalized by Anselm Douglas and Colin Lucas and; “First in De Line” composed by Alvin Daniell and Edwin Pouchet, and sung by Eunice Peters.

While Conventional Bands have selected 2009 compositions, the majority of Single Pan Bands have chosen calypsoes of yesteryear.

Several Conventional bands have opted for specially commissioned songs. These include reigning champions Phase II Pan Groove who are going with “Magic Drums” - a Machel Montano/Len “Boogsie” Sharpe collaboration, while Sagicor Exodus will play “Festival Time,” written and performed by Pelham Goddard & 3 Canal, respectively. 

This year, it is a Leon “Smooth” Edwards composition for Neal & Massy Trinidad All Stars, called  “Pan Rivalry;” it will be the first year that “Smooth” wears two hats - he is also, as expected, the band’s arranger.  Courts Sound Specialists of Laventille is also coming with a selection from their arranger for 2009, Ken “Professor” Philmore - “D Trini Way.”  WITCO Desperadoes has decided to continue with the music of Jason “Peanuts” Isaacs for a consecutive year, with the latter’s “Pan Redemption.”

At the close of registration TCL Group Skiffle Bunch, Pamberi, Birdsong, Tokyo and Power Stars are yet to decide their music selections.

Panorama Preliminaries will once again be staged in Regions at the various panyards/theatres commencing Friday 23rd January, with those for Single Pan Bands being held in the North.  Conventional Bands will face their adjudication panel from Tuesday 27th January.
