ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sweet Steel is Julie Jaskula and Sue Manaois. Julie and Sue studied steel pans and played in the steel band together at Northern Illinois University under the direction of master tuner and arranger Cliff Alexis. After finishing their graduate work at NIU, Julie moved to the San Diego, CA area and Sue moved to the Dallas, TX area where they each pursued careers as performing musicians. While Julie and Sue were performing individually, they were both asked frequently about whether they had recorded a CD, so they decided to work together and collaborate on the first Sweet Steel CD. Steel Drum Sounds of the Caribbean is a collection of popular soca, calypso and reggae island tunes. The music ranges from Caribbean ballads to up-tempo party music and also includes 2 tunes from Walt Disney's "The Little Mermaid."

Julie and Sue are currently both performing professionally under the name Sweet Steel and also doing freelance work with other musicians. They each play Caribbean and Classical steel drum music for private parties, corporate events and weddings in San Diego, CA and Dallas, TX. You can find more information about Sweet Steel's music and booking by visiting: www.sweetsteel.com.

Driller from Big D

Fantastic! Exactly what I was looking for.
I bought this CD specifically for "Brown Skin Girl". It is a great rendition, exactly what I was looking for. The bonus is that the other seven songs are equally fantastic. Thay all take us back to our Caribbean Cruise. I highly recommend this CD.

Jack Bierman

Exactly what I hoped for
I wanted some music for chillin' while I was blue water fishing off the coast of Florida. I listened to the tracks before I bought the CD so I knew it was very well done. I really like it. The only thing that keeps it from getting 5 stars is that there aren't enough songs!

Fantastic CD! I was looking for a CD with some Disney songs. Our high school choir is taking a trip there and several of the students came to dinner at our house, prior to the homecoming dance with a Tropical Serenade theme. This CD was great dinner music.
We had taken the Disney cruise a few years back and this CD took us right back to the beautiful Caribbean waters. I play it often, so it was an excellent purchase. I highly recommend it. Sometimes this kind of music can get under my skin, but this one I can play over and over. I would love to see a CD of all Disney songs.

Lennart

Awesome CD-the best tropical music I've heard so far! My 11 month old twins even love it...they dance when they hear it! We are going to play it during their first birthday party. It's also the perfect cd to listen to when you are stuck in traffic or just want to kick back and relax!!
