ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Caribbean jazz with FIRE !

CaneFire is a high-energy Caribbean music experience that combines Trinidadian calypso with Latin rhythms, jazz, and blues to create a unique, exciting sound. At the heart of this sound is its unconventional use of the steelpan – the Trinidadian percussion instrument that transforms oil barrels into sound vessels.

Canadian pianist Jeremy Ledbetter, musical director and arranger for Trinidadian calypso legend David Rudder, put CaneFire together in 2005 to perform the Caribbean-rooted music inspired by his world travels. A talented group of young musicians from diverse backgrounds, CaneFire has won international acclaim as one of the most exciting Caribbean jazz ensembles around.

CaneFire is:
Jeremy Ledbetter -- Piano
Mark Mosca -- Steelpan
Alexis Baró -- trumpet
Braxton Hicks -- saxophones
Yoser Rodriguez -- bass
Chendy León -- drums
Alberto Suárez -- percussion

CaneFire premiered in Toronto in May '05, and has since performed at Harbourfront Centre, the Toronto Centre for the Arts, the Beaches International Jazz Festival, the Atlantic Jazz Festival, the St. John's Jazz Festival, the El Hatillo Jazz Festival (Venezuela), and the Trinidad and Tobago Steelpan and Jazz Festival. CaneFire's debut album, "Kaiso Blue", was recorded at CBC's Studio 211 in Toronto, and includes guest performances by Andy Narell and Venezuelan vocalist Eliana Cuevas .

Bob Aitken

Excellent Caribbean band. Every member classy.
This CD is about the best thing i've heard in a long time. Saw them in concert in Toronto and the CD perfectly showcases their great talent. Jeremy is a genius,and the band members play like seasoned veterans. A very classy album.

Harold Williams

Unique, energetic and ADDICTIVE group.
I picked up this CD 3 weeks ago and I haven't stopped listening to it since. Kind of like how Spyro Gyra or the Caribbean Jazz Project would sound if you lit them on fire. The music is a unique blend of so many different things, and the end result is beautiful and uplifting -- you can't listen to it without a great big stupid grin on your face. Incredible steeldrum playing, piano and percussion virtuosos, and totally new rhythms that groove for days. I can't think of any other group that sounds quite like this. Five stars!
