Panman paints third musical portrait

If you enjoyed the music on the first two Portraits of Martin Albino CDs, your pleasure will be tripled when you listen to the seven tracks on the third CD of the same name produced by the talented brother of renowned steelpan educator and adjudicator Merle Albino-deCoteau. To be officially launched in Montreal, Canada, on April 6, Portraits of Martin Albino contains three original songs written and sung by Martin—Shine, Not 4 Rent, and Music.

Also included are steelpan renditions of Offenbach’s Barcarolle and Mozart’s Melody In F, played on the double tenor pan, and vocals renditions of Bob Marley’s Lion of Judah, and Sniper’s (Mervyn Hodge) Portrait of Trinidad. “I have dedicated Barcarolle to my mentor Neville Jules of Trinidad All Stars, as it was the first song I learnt to play on the pan, during the time I spent with him in the garret on Charlotte Street,” recalled Martin. “The originals I wrote some five or six years ago.”

The youngest in the musical Albino family from Laventille, as a young man Martin was crowned Junior Calypso Monarch on four consecutive occasions, and was a regular performer on radio and television. He became leader and arranger of Chase Manhattan Savoys Steel Orchestra, and in 1968 was chosen to teach pan to youths in Brooklyn, Harlem, and Bedford Stuyvesant in a programme sponsored by Chase Manhattan Bank and the government.
