Review

Steel Sensation is an audacious name to give yourself. The boldness, however, seems appropriate after you have listened to Variety In Steel. New York, New York, the opening track is something to behold, aurally. But that is not surprising since these performers are the generation spawned from legends, literally and figuratively.

The Samaroo Jets have cleared the path for their progeny: A brother is the father of the arranger and a sister is the mother of the drummer.  Now on their own, these children -- the whole group with their Trinidad and Tobago heritage -- reassure "Uncle" Merchant, who is listening from the great beyond, that pan is not in danger.

Steel Sensation show through their repertoire and playing skills that pan is perennial.  Consider a few selections: The legend influence is evident again for they choose Bob Marley, Len "Boogsie" Sharpe, Kitchener and Sparrow - "Sa Sa Yea", is a pleasant surprise in the Kaiso Medley.  Without having to strain you hear unadorned pan in "Jammin' " for instance, not just the tenor but an extended solo of the double second. Same in Len 'Boogsie' Sharpe's "Do What You Want".  Pure pan.

Variety In Steel is an accurately descriptive title for this New York based group's debut recording.  The selections represent calypso, reggae, European classical, American and Indian film, Latin and contemporary pop.  All of it authentic pan by Steel Sensation. A group confidently stepping forward. [eCaroh/Ron]
