Andy Narrell Talking Jazz
Andy Narrell was born in Brooklyn, an unlikely source for the man who has become a hero in the islands of Trinidad and Tobago for his astonishing prowess on the steel drum. And here in the States, Narrell has become something of a hero in the jazz world, where playing bebop is the goal and the instrument is just the vehicle. Rare opportunity to learn about the history of a relatively new instruments. Jazz is a calling, a way to play music, not a kind of music. Some people play it on the bagpipes, some on hollow logs; Narrell on steel drums.
