ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Are you looking for some music to melt away the stress of the day, the kind that will have you singing just like that morning dove outside your window? I have just the thing, a musical elixir delivered by a magician of the steel pan named Robert Symons.

I had the pleasure of hearing the first two installments of his Tropicana Steel Pan music, now he has Volume 3 all set to go so you can load up all three CDs, turn it up, kick back, and get a sun tan right in your own living room, well, almost. The music certainly does give a beachside view of that island of your dreams with the pink sand and endless shoreline. Imagery is what this music creates and it works very well if you let it.

You will recognize many, if not all of these tunes; I guess that would depend on your age group though. I found myself singing all the words after a few notes, except "Begin The Beguine," I am not that old. It is quite amazing how Symons coaxes all of these beautiful rhythms and sounds from his steel pan set. A James Taylor classic opens the album, "Handyman," and it sets the mood just right and puts a warm feeling in your heart. Taylor's music was always good for those warm fuzzy feelings. I love Lulu's timeless tune "To Sir With Love," there is just something about that song that pulls on my heartstrings and I think about the movie with Sydney Poitier. It really is something how the instrumental takes on these songs can stir up so many things in your mind.

Symons has the right approach with this series of releases, take some of the best-known tunes, and make them his own with the help of the steel drums. He gives you a chance to relive all the feelings and emotions that go along with each time tested tune. Breathing some of that tropical way of living into the tunes with some of the most simple and relaxing music there is what the result is of this fine effort accomplishes. Once again, directly from Bermuda, the steel drums will steal you away for a while. Trust me, this music is a wonderful relaxing tool, try it you will like it.

Top notch CD - a "must have" for anyone who enjoys island music!
This CD is first class all the way. After hearing Vol. 1 in a Hamilton gift store I brought it home and then needed more! Now I must order Vol. II. I would love to hear him play in person.

Tropicana Steel Pan is so relaxing to listen to...fabulous !
It was wonderful meeting Robert in person during a recent trip to Bermuda, watching him play the steel drums in front of me, then returning home to Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania and listening again and again to this masterful musician and his very relaxing Tropicana CD selections. Fantastic!

Having visited Bermuda many times during my service in the Royal Canadian Navy, I heard pan music before, but not like this. Mr. Symons has captured the essence of all of the songs and the melod;y comes through without a lot of backup "noise" which makes his discs easy listening. It is very soothing and being in a nursing home I find it most relaxing---but at times would like to get up and dance with the nurses! Many thanks for such beautiful music Mr. Symons.

Soothing sound
I have listened to Robert and his soothing randitions of my favorite music a lot on a cruiseship where he entertained. I bought this album to have his songs for myself, anytime. Will buy more and recommend his relaxing style being so different from other steel drum artists.

Robert Symons Tropicana Steel Pan Vol 3
This CD was exactly what we have been looking for. Beautiful, soothing, relaxing, but lively enough to give everyone at the pool party the feeling that they were in the islands drifting with the music. Great selections on the CD.
