The New York Steelband Experience

 

New York - We at Basement Recordings have been extremely fortunate, to have been able to rub shoulders and work with the world's most gifted, talented and renowned composers / arrangers / producers of steelband music.  These musical titans are known and recognized by single names.  You have only to mention -  Bradley, Boogsie, Pelham, Jit, Greenidge and Smooth to name a few - for immediate recognition.  Of equal value has been our being able to capture the world's première steel orchestras in the heat of the competition season.

A Philip Glass Birthday Concert

 

NYU debuts Steel Drum Ensemble

NYU_steel-DSCN1074.jpgNew York - NYU's (New York University) Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions held a special tribute to composer Philip Glass last night at the Frederick Lowe Theatre in the Village, New York.  The event - "A Philip Glass Birthday Concert," was the first ever all- percussion concert performance of the composer's music.  The NYU Percussion Ensemble and the NYU Steel Drum Ensemble were among the featured performers on what started out as a slightly rainy Wednesday evening.  That did not present an obstacle for the almost seventy-five percent audience in attendance at the theatre.  Show director was the renowned conductor/timpanist Jonathan Haas.  Josh Quillen is the director of the NYU Steel Drum Ensemble.

Sizzle or fizzle?

 

Barbados - A massive 300-member steel orchestra, reputedly the largest ever assembled, beat out the sweet tunes of Lord Kitchener's classic Pan In A Minor.

They were surrounded by the dancing, waving party people, stilt walkers and bele dancers and a dozen massive dancing puppets designed by Minshall, which danced fluidly to the music.

A spectacular fireworks display in the east beyond the temporary stand, capped it all off.

It was truly a beautiful spectacle.

Unfortunately, aside from those who remained at Kensington Oval after the last firework fizzled, most people probably did not get to witness the procession of musical stars as their performance was tacked back on at the end and was not even televised.

Carnival Showcase No More

Panorama Replaces Show

Mayor abandons alternative carnival plan

UK - The controversial Caribbean Showcase in Hyde Park is to be axed this year, The Voice can exclusively reveal.

The Showcase, brainchild of London mayor Ken Livingstone, is to be ditched in favour of the annual Panorama steelband competition staged by the Notting Hill Carnival Limited, the company that runs the two-day extravaganza.

Livingstone introduced the Caribbean Showcase in 2005 in an attempt to draw crowds away from the main celebrations in Notting Hill.

The mayor had repeatedly called for Hyde Park to play a bigger role in the carnival celebrations, despite the street party’s historical connections with the west London Notting Hill area.

Feel the beat Steel Orchestra offers a positive learning experience for kids

Florida -  Nearly six years ago, Alex James stood on the sidelines eagerly watching the Pensacola Youth Steel Orchestra perform in the Martin Luther King parade. The Caribbean-styled music's soulful beat captivated him, it was so different from anything he had heard before.

"I just knew I wanted to be a part of the band," said James, 18. One month later, he was in.

Today, James and his peers will participate in the Pensacola GoomBay Festival in the Belmont-DeVilliers district.

The 24-member ensemble, which is comprised of students from area schools and churches, will perform alongside bands from the University of Southern Mississippi, University of Georgia and Florida State University in the carnival style, daylong event

Moods Pan Groove -
A New York Original

Pan Classics in the House

 

One can not really have a serious discussion about pan in New York without talking about Moods Pan Groove.  The long-time steelband music staple has it's name permanently etched in the annals of steelband music history.  Led by their president Clyde Durant, a New York pan stalwart and pillar of the New York steelband movement - Moods Pan Groove established itself as one of New York's premier orchestras through the 1980's and 1990's.

Established in 1976 by noted arranger Brian "Bean" Griffith, Moods was always known for it's cutting edge sound and musical direction.  Musically, in many ways, Moods was ahead of its time, as their music refused to be defined and confined to the traditional steelband accepted boundaries and norms.  Many have surmised that it was because of their defiant and uncompromising musical attitude, that robbed Moods Pan Groove of more panorama victories than their sole 1977 championship.  However, whatever they may have lost in panorama wins, they more than made up for in respect from their peers for their ability and musical influence on the sound of pan in New York.  Moreover, their music and performances have passed the test of time and only gets better with each passing year and listening.  Moods has laid down some of the greatest pan music ever in the history of New York or Trinidad.

Naviessa Lake in the Spotlight

 

 

St. Kitts-Nevis - Naviessa is an accomplished pannist and dancer having played for close to 10 years with the St.Kitts National Steel Orchestra (SKNSO) and a little over 1 year dancing with the SKB Rythymz Dancerz. 

It will be no mystery or surprise therefore that she has a love for the steel pan and dancing both of which occupies all if not most of her spare time. She also enjoys reading which is rare among young people today.
 
Navaiessa expresses a strong admiration for the late Earl "Boots" Jones who nurtured her talent as a pannist . She sees the pageant as an avenue to expose her talent as well as an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy new experiences.

Picnic with the Pans

 

Botswana - Last Tuesday Broadhurst Primary School Steelband in Gaborone staged a concert entitled Picnic with The Pans.  The event was held to raise funds for the purchase of giant chess pieces to be used in the new Music and Chess Garden at the School.  The garden has a large chessboard, and once complete, will provide children with another enriching activity.  Picnic with The Pans took the form of an outdoor evening picnic concert, with guests scattered informally in the area, eating their dinner and visiting with friends and family. The students provided the musical entertainment on the steelpans and the senior choir sang.  It was a very successful evening and the children are already planning the programme for the next Picnic with the Pans!

Here’s to a ‘pantastic’ partnership

Antigua - I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, “pan music sweet me bad.”

Imagine my sheer delight when the combined steel orchestra of the Junior C&W Hells Gate Steel Orchestra with the Combined Catholic Schools’ Steel Orchestra (representing Antigua) and the Urban Steel Orchestra from John Marshall High School (representing Great Rochester, NY) rendered an exhilarating arrangement to El-A-Kru’s Maria, which happens to be one of my all time favourite songs.

Last year, the South partners (being Antigua) of the Partners of America Great Rochester-Antigua & Barbuda travelled to Rochester to meet their North Partners and engaged in a cultural exchange centring around steelpan. That’s right, after the partnership began over 20 years ago, in 1995 members of the South partners, including Stafford Joseph of the Hells Gate Steel Orchestra, trained a few students, and organised for steel pans to be built on the school campus of the John Marshall High School.

The Beat of a Different Drum

Virginia - Not many musical instruments have the allure and mystique of the steel drum. Born from an accident and beaten out of a 55-gallon oil drum, the sounds that come from this instrument conjure daydreams of the Caribbean islands. Beyond their novelty, however, steel drums, or steel pans as they are also called, are helping local at-risk teens with team-building skills and self-esteem issues as well as teaching them about cultural awareness in a setting outside of their classrooms.

Steel pan band follows a sound teaching method

Maryland - Alexander Scott brings his padded drum stick nearly to the surface of the double second drum in front of him, then stops and quickly scribbles a note on a paper on his music stand.

He fakes another strike on the drum and scribbles again, repeating the process two more times.

It's as if the instrument, which looks like a steel saucer sled, has an invisible shield against his drumsticks.

In reality, the Catonsville High School senior is taking notes on the chords he's being asked to play by Ray Holman, a guest artist of the school's steel band.
