Pan in New York 2009 - the ‘Cooldown Versions’

Find more videos like this on When Steel Talks

Sonatas Steel Orchestra

A few days before the 2009 New York steelband music panorama, Basement Recordings captured Sonatas Steel Orchestra in their panyard in Brooklyn, New York. Sonatas would go on to win the 2009 championship a few days later. This is a 3-minute sample of the ten-minute slow version of their panorama selection 'Bandoleros.'

This year, there will be two Pan In New York CDs released.  Pan In New York 2009 - the CD, will feature the orchestras performing at tempo.

The other CD, “Pan In New York - the Cooldown Versions” will feature the bands playing at reduced tempo (including the slow version you are listening to now from Sonatas), an aspect which has always been in demand over the years, so that the arrangements as sonically envisioned by the arranger, and performed and executed by the steel orchestras, may truly be savored at a slower paced performance.

The up-tempo release, Pan in New York 2009, will feature the musical skills of Despers USA, Sonatas, CASYM and Pantonic (all four have been Panorama champions in their own right over the years), in addition to CrossFire, D'Radoes and Sesame Flyers.

These two CD releases are, of course, a continuation of the Pan-4-Life series from Basement Recordings.

You can order these CDs from www.Pantonic.com/cds - Call 1 (718) 434-0231, or contact any participating orchestra’s management...
