Various ‎– Panorama: Steelbands Of Trinidad & Tobago

Delos ‎– DE 4015
CD, Compilation, Stereo


The fourth in the Caribbean Carnival series. This CD features the winners of the 1990 Panorama competition.Liner Note Author: Simeon L. Sandiford.Arrangers: Leon "Smooth" Edwards; Jit Samaroo; Godwyn Bowen; Edward Edwards; Anese Hadeed; Pelham Goddard; Ken "Professor" Philmore; Len "Boogsie" Sharpe.A wonderful compilation of recordings (in the same manner as all the others of the Caribbean Carnival series on Delos) made during practice sessions for the Panorama competition in Trinidad. All of the major forces in the competition circa 1990 are present for the listener. Len Boogsie Sharpe has a piece here, as does Lord Kitchener. The prime bands, too, are playing at top form (or at least close to it). As with the others in the series (Pan Woman, Trinidad Carnival, Carnival Jump Up, etc.), one that has any love for steelband music at all should definitely consider hunting down these albums.
