Leon 'Smooth' Edwards Arranger, Trinidad All Stars
Leon ‘Smooth’ Edwards’ first-ever
Panorama composition is out, and it is for 2009, titled ‘Pan Rivalry.’
Leon will be arranging the piece for the Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra in the Panorama competition next year. This piece has been long in coming. Smooth has been resident arranger for All Stars since 1976, minus a 10-year hiatus between 1988 and 1997.
The inspiration for the piece came after Leon arranged ‘Thunder Coming’ for All Stars which was composed by Edwin Pouchet for Silver Stars in 2008. Leon, the
management and members of Trinidad All Stars are very excited about this
musical work that is ‘Pan Rivalry’and look forward to performing it for the public come Panorama 2009.
