Jim Ziegler

Bravo, Tom! A Great Mix of Tropical Jazz!
I really enjoyed the variety of tune styles and the great playing on this CD. It's fun to hear popular Jamaican and great American Standards done in this style. Having worked with Tom for many years, I can tell that it's up to his usual high standard of excellence.


Loved it! Wonderful and relaxing to listen too.
A must have for anyone who loved the soothing sounds of the steel pan.

Christianna Coomes

2nd of this artist's CD's purchased. Just wonderful....
This is the 2nd of Liston's CD's I've purchased. Was looking for a steel band CD that was lively but not over the top loud or rambunxious singing. I'm able to pop
this into my CD player at work...and everyone walking by really enyoys it--it's changes those moping Monday morning folks and puts a little swing in their step. Liston's
style is relaxed yet sophisticated. Another Winner!

John Tamburri

Spectacular Sounds
Outstanding collection ofTropical/jazz music,performed by Tom Liston, who is one of the most versatile performers on the music scene today.
Sit back relax and enjoy the magical sound of this great album.A must for anyones collection.

Bill Dendle

Wonderful, jazz-influenced, melodic steel drumming!
Tom Liston has modernized/jazzed up the steel drum without losing any of the wonderful traditional quality of the music. His technique on the pans is incredibly smooth and melodic, and adds a lyrical quality to this genre that I've not heard anywhere else. The rhythm section is impressive also - grooving hard and supporting the steel drums perfectly at all times. This is simply the best steel drum recording I've ever heard!


grreeeaatttttt CD
The CD is great - happy music! I love it...

Andrew Day

Very easy to listen to!!!
Very easy to listen to and a nice instrument sound.Mother in law happy - so that's good.

John Becker

A great jazz latin collection of steel drum music, with infectious grooves.
This CD is wonderful collection of upbeat latin and jazz music, performed by a musical steel drum player. I've always loved the sound of steel drums, and Tom Liston has his own unique sound on pans. It is fun, upbeat music!

I had ordered this along with "Christmas Paradise" and am enjoying the Christmas music so much that I have only played this one once - but it is terrific and will be heard more often later !! In the -35 temps we get here in Winnipeg, this is heart warming.

Tracy Gillespie

The cd is wonderful. I have been looking for one with steel drum music for my mother in law. She went to the islands once and fell in love with the music. This cd is perfect. It will be a great christmas present that I know she will love. thanks. and you guys are hilarious!
