This week's edition of the Cool Steel  steelpan music program on PanRadio opened up with a special exclusive internet "sneak preview" from Pantonic Steel Orchestra's upcoming CD/DVD treat for 2005.  The New York powerhouse,  featuring the musical vision of their captain and accomplished arranger, Keith Roberts, showcased his interpretation and Pantonic's talents with Shania Twain's hit "Still The One."   This project is a follow- up collaboration with Basement Recordings, to the steel orchestra's world famous Pantonic Live! The CD.  Cool Steel is picking this one as a "sure shot" monster hit!

Desperadoes, playing John Legend's "Ordinary People" as arranged by the master Clive Bradley for the Pan In The 21st Century 2005 competition, continues to be the runaway smash hit and top-requested pan tune for the past six weeks.   It's become an "I-Pod" favorite!  Looks like this is going to be one of the major contenders for the 2005 steelpan music single of the year.  Not far behind, mind you, is the second most requested pan single also in the past six weeks - Phase 2 Pan Groove's roaring renditon of Boogsie Sharpe's outstanding arrangement of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."
