for available CDs and DVDs with the
complete music performances of Clive Bradley's music
New York is famous for
its universities, theatres and museums among its many other
star attractions. New York is also known for its great
steelbands. A stone's throw away from the Empire State
Building, The Yankees, Madison Square Garden, Broadway and
Lincoln Center, the greatest collection of steelbands outside
of the birth place of the art form (Trinidad and Tobago)
exists and thrives.
New York is a town of many colors, moods
and tempos. And New York Pan is as special as it's
home. It has an attitude and flavor like no other
place in the world. Faced with a different pace and
environment, the New York arrangers are challenged to embrace,
and seamlessly interweave elements of popular urban street
music, while all the time retaining the authentic Caribbean
genre and motifs.
Clive Bradley knew and understood the urban sensibilities
of this city better than anyone. In his last New York
performance he took both first and second place positions
in the hotly contested music competition known as Panorama.
His flare for drama, theatre and stage coupled with his
unique brand of humor, mischief-making and fun, topped off
by his sheer genius, made every Clive Bradley encounter
much more than just a musical moment.
Talks has put some of these moments
together for your viewing.
