“The Bradley Years”

The Bradley Years represent the definitive collection of steelband music arrangements and performances for a large steel orchestra. This collection showcases seven classic arrangements from the master arranger Clive Bradley.  Bradley is considered to be the best steelband music arranger ever by many, including his peers.  In addition, the arrangements are performed by one of the finest steelbands in the world, New York’s Pantonic Steel Orchestra. Clive Bradley had a very special relationship with Pantonic.  This orchestra clinched the title of panorama champions five times in seven years - performing Bradley’s musical works.  The performances were captured by Basement Recordings days before, and in one instance, mere moments before they took the stage for the prestigious annual steelband music panorama competition. 

The recordings capture, reproduce and present an unrivalled clarity with sonic realism, of a large steel orchestra fielding between one hundred and one hundred twenty musicians - unlike any other steelband music recordings in its class.

This body of musical work is a sterling addition for all fans, educators, players, historians and fine music collectors.

Bands go for Hookin’ Meh

Fonclaire Steel Orchestra

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The most popular song for 2019 Carnival Hookin’ Meh by Darryl “Farmer Nappy” Henry has become a sort of “test piece” for Conventional Large bands in Panorama.

Five bands, led by defending champions BPTT Renegades will be playing Hookin Meh; very early arranger Duvone Stewart and the management and players chose the song as a leading contender. They waited a bit to hear other songs before making it the tune of choice.

Second place CAL Skiffle is also coming to town with Hookin’ Meh arranged by Marc Brooks, Kendall Williams and Odie Franklyn.

Holiday flashback: Barrels to Beethoven event held in Wilkinsburg

Sofia Pugliano plays the steelpan, center, along with brothers Zosha Nowe, left, and Ziah Nowe, right

Pennsylvania, USA - On the heels of a successful holiday party last month, Barrels to Beethoven — an organization co-founded by Leigh Solomon Pugliano and her husband, David Pugliano, that focuses on the preservation, education and innovation of the steelpan — is launching a new initiative: the Wilkinsburg Youth Steel Orchestra.

Fundraising currently is underway for this new orchestra, which was developed to provide a comprehensive steelpan music program for children living in Wilkinsburg and surrounding communities. The program will train a class of young people to be better musicians, creatives, collaborators and citizens by using a contextually underappreciated instrument and narrative.

The program will also follow the traditional steelpan culture in the Caribbean that allows young people to develop as musicians through performance ensembles as a means to preserve art and culture and build a sense of community.

....“The steelpan has had such a positive impact on my life and the lives of so of many youth around the world,” said Ms. Pugliano.

Pan Elders Struggles
Unsponsored 5-time medium band champs in crunch

Pan Elders players in their winning performance at the 2018 Panorama medium band finals at Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain. The band is struggling to attract players this year because it is unsponsored and Pan Trinbago cannot affort to pay performance fees to pannists

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Five-time medium band champion Pan Elders’ quest to successfully defend its title for 2019 is in jeopardy.

Bandleader Hollister Smith told Sunday Newsday that as of yesterday he did not even have 40 players in his band, “because everybody want money.” Preliminary judging for the band from Carib Street, San Fernando is February 10.

Pan Trinbago’s decision to withhold players’ stipend for the next two years as well as the drying up of assistance from the successor companies of former state-owned oil company Petrotrin, once a major sponsor, has adversely affected Pan Elders' ability to attract players. A medium band can have up to 75 players for the preliminaries and semi-finals and a maximum of 90 players in the finals.

Duvone’s A-game
Arranger seeks repeat victories for Renegades, Pan Elders

Arranger Duvone Stewart leads BPTT Renegades to victory in the 2018 Panorama finals with the performance of Year to Love at Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - To the uninformed, Duvone Stewart can seem boastful.

Get to know him, though, and you’ll realise his apparent cockiness is really an affirmation of the greatness, he believes, he was destined to claim.

“I have always maintained a stance that I was born a winner,” an upbeat Stewart, 42, declared in a Sunday Newsday interview.

“I am living my dream and I am enjoying my dream and doing what I love doing best, making music and making people feel happy.”

As the ace arranger for BP Renegades Steel Orchestra, Stewart took the popular Duke Street, Port of Spain band, to victory with Voice’s (Aaron St Louis’) Year For Love, in last year’s National Panorama competition – a title it had last clinched some 21 years before.

Players and Tuners are People Too
Chronicles of a Panorama

by Sharmain Baboolal

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Acclaimed tuner, master craftsman, “Birch” Kelman, will be out for the carnival season. He’s recovering from surgery.

Who, besides the bands he works with, is taking note? He's one man- but a rare foundation stone.

It’s tough to get quality steel drums in Trinidad & Tobago to even start to make a pan.

At the very heart of the thing- even before you get an instrument for a player- there’s a challenge that is nearing crisis proportions.

The Carnival is over

by Raffique Shah

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - I was pleasantly surprised when the announcement by the National Carnival Commission that it was scrapping the North Stand for this year’s Carnival did not elicit an uproar of objections from stakeholders in the national festival and hordes of party animals whose love for steelband music lasts one day—the National Panorama Semi-Finals.

For all its symbolic representation of the spirit of Carnival, crammed as it was (note tense) with more than its 8,000 maximum capacity, the North Stand was a colossal waste of taxpayers’ money. For close to 50 years, ritually, every January, contractors and hundreds of workers would engage in a frenetic exercise of erecting the facility, only to dismantle it two weeks after Carnival. The cost? Four million dollars.

Bandits Strike Marsicans Single Pan Band

by Sharmain Baboolal

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Thieves climbed through a very small space between the roof and the wall at the Marsicans Steel Orchestra panyard and stole five chromed tenor pans from the band on Monday night.

That represents more than half the frontline of nine tenors for the single pan band, former national champions, who are practicing for Panorama 2019.

It put the 30-year-old unsponsored band back by TT$25,000, given the cost of one tenor pan, at its lowest, is TT$5,000.

Global - Early in his career, David Rudder acquired a reputation as a back-up singer in the calypso tent run by Lord Kitchener.  Rudder’s first big break came when Christopher “Tambu” Herbert, lead singer with Charlie’s Roots, fell ill after an exhausting tour of Guyana and suggested his friend Rudder as a temporary replacement.

Rudder stayed on as a co-lead singer, and built a reputation globally for his scintillating performances. He is also a prolific composer.

Featured on vocals here for the 2019 season, Rudder also wrote the lyrics for this track - ‘EL (Ellie)’ - with music by Jeff Narell. As the latter describes it - an elegy for Dr. Ellie Mannette. It is a tribute to the late steelband legend.

Beverley: No remittances for panists this year

Beverley Ramsey-Moore, President of Pan TrinbagoTrinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Pan Trinbago would not be paying remittances to panists who play in Panorama 2019 and 2020.

“I cannot, at this time, make any promise on players’ remittances for 2019 and 2020.We know that the players are a bit disappointed, but we definitely cannot afford it because we’ve seen where we’ve moved from budgets of $30,000 to $20,000.

“So, we are asking bands to do whatever is necessary to raise revenues to assist in meeting the expenses for their players, but at this time, we would not be able to pay players’ remittance,” she said.

I had just found out. As tears rolled down my face, I started to write, I could feel Pro’s spirit comforting me and inspiring me at the same time. Such emotion came over me in that moment, and then again as I sang the lyrics in studio. Something special was created. I hope this song brings closure to all who loved him as it has done for us.”

Gypsy: North Park no free for all
UPDATE

NCC chairman Winton "Gypsy" PetersTrinidad & Tobago, W.I. - National Carnival Commission (NCC) chairman Winston “Gypsy” Peters has declared the North Park, which is to replace the North Stand at the Queen’s Park Savannah (QPS), Port of Spain, would not be a “free for all.”

Peters also was adamant that the organisation, under his watch, would be weaned away from its dependence on government subventions and put on a path of self-sufficiency.

“It is the focus instituted by my stewardship and that is the model we are using,” he said on Friday.

“I hope that long after I am gone that it is going to be used because it is one that is beneficial to the people of TT. At the end of the day, it is the people of TT’s money and it has to be spent prudently.”

Peters, who became NCC chairman in April, condemned what he called the “culture of freeness” in TT, saying that under his stewardship, it would no longer be business as usual as the organisation prepares for a long and potentially hectic 2019 Carnival season which climaxes on March 4 and 5.

....Pan Trinbago president Beverley Ramsey-Moore said last week she was upset about the move but hoped the proposed North Park would ensure the organisation does not lose any revenue.

Peters said change was often hard to accept.

With colors of red, white and green everywhere, on December 23, 2018 the St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church in Brooklyn, New York was abuzz with the excitement of the youth of Class One and Class Two looking forward to their night’s performance. Past CASYM students/members, family and friends of years gone by, CASYM’s present students and young ones who will undoubtedly be in CASYM’s future - locked in a life cycle of CASYM’s past, present and future.

Pan Trinbago unhappy with plans to scrap North Stand

Beverley Ramsey-MooreTrinidad & Tobago, W.I. - The absence of the North Stand may save the National Carnival Commission [NCC] significant money, but without a viable alternative, it may cost Pan Trinbago millions in ticket revenue.

President of Pan Trinbago Beverley Ramsey-Moore told the Guardian in a phone interview that the decision to scrap the North Stand most directly affected her organisation, as apart from regular patrons, several companies negotiate packages with Pan Trinbago concerning the North Stand for Panorama.

"We stand to lose if the North Park is constructed as proposed.

"I have raised it with NCC, I have raised it also with my staff and we expect that whatever design is put forward will ensure that Pan Trinbago's events are not affected," said Ramsey-Moore, who said that she understood and welcomed change but that it should not come at the expense of pan as the other interest groups would not be as greatly affected as Pan Trinbago
