iRADIO.tt brings you a world premiere event, RON REID Precious Metals: The Album Launch Concert at the Central Bank Auditorium, Port of Spain on Sunday August 21 from 6:00 PM.
Come join Ron and his friends for an exclusive performance of new music from the album and the launch of a new era in calypso jazz. Precious Metals is the first new album of music from Ron Reid in over a decade. From the album liner notes, we read:
Music is a powerful tool of expression and Precious Metals is an exemplar. This mélange of global melodies and timeless rhythms offers an insightful glimpse into the transparent, emotive and reflective life journey of a musician whose love for Trinidadian folk music, Afro-Caribbean culture and jazz is as evident as it is contagious. Ron Reid is a sage with an astute ability to merge the sonic representations of past traditions with contemporary musings. Indeed!
Playing a mix of original compositions and new arrangements of the music of Lord Kitchener, Andre Tanker, David Happy Williams, Len Boogsie Sharpe, this album and this concert is a celebration and a re-discovery of the best we can be as a land of music.
