Album Notes
Containing bass and percussion backgrounds, accompanying a lead steel pan with conventional harmony. This CD was just an experiment and really ah first try for JR at recording, mixing, soloing and voicing. This is the first lead pan ever made for him by Mikey Enoch, which of course he fell in love with. There are some really good movements in it and it was tough to believe the accomplishment was that of a first timer of course, with a lot of encouragement from Al St. John and Richard Smith. So he finally decided to release it on CD Baby. We are sure if you like traditional Caribbean and World music selections you'll enjoy at least two selections for the very least on this experimental CD. JR credits the Brooklynaires Steel Orchestra on this CD for their assistance and contributions to his steel pan and musical career especially Kenneth Moore, Jo Olivershea, Claude Wickam, Bonnie, Reggie, Leon, Winston, and Damon.

Nice Steel Pan work on this CD
“Simply Melodies” by JR’S Socalypsoreggaeroc! is a very creative assembly of Caribbean instrumentals. With the native and elegant steel pan as the driving instrument, these songs are extremely melodic. What’s more, the structure of these tunes are, as the title suggests, kept very simple. The steel pan is at the forefront of this CD with minimal backing by bass, drums, and some synthesizer fills, allowing the intricate sounds of the steel pan to shine through. “Jamaica Farewell, Yellow Bird, Letter From Jamaica” opens with a very non-traditional drum arrangement that catches the listener’s attention. Moreover, “Ah Come Back Home” displays a very memorable steel pan melody. Minimal production adds to the simplicity of these tracks. If you enjoy world Caribbean music then you should check out the nice steel pan work on these tracks.
