It’s Finally done- check it out!
The first six songs have surf and seagulls mixed in to transport you instantly to the beach-
The last 6 are all steel drums with no background.
This recording was done on entirely on my set of Double Second Pans, which were made in 1987 by Master Pan Builder Cliff Alexis. I have known Cliff since my College days at NIU (where he is still Artist in Residence). Cliff is truly an amazing craftsman- his fine work is evident here!
My goal in making this recording was to create songs that both relax and rejuvinate, with some classic Calypso melodies and chord changes built in. The patterns I play built some interesting overtones, which was something that just happened as I went along.
I recorded this at my home studio- Thanks to my wonderful family for putting up with me!
There will also be hard CD copies available- stay tuned for more information on how to order if you’re partial to having one.
