Caribbean Flavours is a compilation different from the
usual assemblage of ‘love song’ tracks so common in the
marketplace. These selections convey sincere affection in a
blend of male and female voices, synthesized strings and
saxophone and steelpan solos. The latter two are features in
“Unchained Melody” reinforcing its status as a standard. Luther
Vandross’ “Dance with My Father” is the tearfully touching
tribute to fathers. Bravo! – I almost said Kaiso! Kaiso! But the
chance comes with Sparrow’s “Mae Mae” in a Castilian rhythm.
The distinction that is Caribbean Flavours is
reinforced by the thoughtfulness in preparing this suite of
thirteen tracks. Kudos to the executive producer – a cultural
enabler - and the production team. May others follow you in not
only covering foreign standards but indigenous classics, too.
You’re too experienced….
