Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Nat Saunders (vocals, banjo); Patricia Bazard, Harrington "Zippy" Frazier, Almeda Campbell, Avis Armbrister (vocals); Thomas Cartwright (accordion).
  • Liner Note Author: Pete Reiniger.
  • Recording information: The Culture Club, Nassau, New Providence (02/02/1995/02/03/1995).
  • A collection of songs from the various islands of the Bahamas. The music is almost always vocal, with accompaniment only by a few musicians, either self-accompanying on guitar/banjo or with a small trio (accordion, drum, saw). The songs are based either in religion, in children's game-songs, or on simple happenings within the town. The recording quality is quite nice throughout, though the music can at times drag on at a far too low tempo for anyone's good (case in point: "Roll a Pin"). Despite an occasional drop, the music is however generally pretty good. There are three- and four-part harmonies thrown everywhere in this collection, usually to good effect. On top of this, the saw player in Thomas Cartwright's group (Huelon Newbold) shows off some level of virtuosity in his rhythmic accompaniment on the tool. The album overall presents a nice look at a music culture generally not thought of along with the other Caribbean genres that have overshadowed it, and not often grouped in with the Southern U.S. traditions which it shares so many features with. Pick up the album for such a look into the vocal traditions in their simplicity, but don't go in expecting grandiose instrumentation. ~ Adam Greenberg
