sunshine and sand in the stereo
The other day a friend asked, "Hey, do you have any good steel pan music?" I had to say no, but that was before I found this CD. Smith leads a masterful set of musicians, and the music is the essence of steel pan... without ever being cliched. It's mellow and happy, like sunshine and sand and blue skies in the stereo. Great for a cold and rainy January day!
