ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alfred St. John on the Caribbean Steel Pans and Jerry Elliott on the 1934 Deagan Marimba and Steinway Baby Grand combine to offer Christmas music of a most unusual and wonderful nature - the sounds of which truly reflect the diversity of the Dynamic Recording label. Here\'s a gent from Trinidad & Tobago performing with a lady from Upstate New York - he\'s black, she\'s white - he\'s middle aged - she\'s over 80! At the same time the first steel pans with melodic notes were being introduced, Jerry was waiting for her fiance to come back from the Army Air Corp. service in Italy at the end of WWII. Now THAT\'s diversity. And the instruments and performances combine beautifully to offer these Christmas selections in a whole new manner of music that illustrates one of the most treasured wishes of the season - Peace on Earth, Good Will To Men.

Alfred St. John\'s Trinidad & Tobago Steelband formed in the 60s and performs in a wide variety of venues throughout the Northeastern US: from private and corporate functions to weddings, college events, and festivals. Alfred has several recordings on the Dynamic label (www.dynamicmusic.com) including an upcoming Christmas album and a popular compilation Christmas album titled Tramper\'s Dynamic Christmas. Jerry Elliott, a state marimba champion in the 40s, has big band performer, music teacher, church organist, and choir director on her musical resume and currently performs at numerous charitable events. She also has a track on the Tramper\'s Dynamic Christmas compilation CD, as well as performance credits on numerous Dynamic Recording label releases.

On these four selections, Jerry plays the Steinway solo for the first verse and the marimba and steel drums are added to the remaining verses of each song.
