Grand Bahama Holiday - Fred Callender's Calypsonians

Pe Pi Ta Corazon
Grand Bahama Holiday
Grand Bahama Hotel
Recorded On The Scene At The Jack Tar
Fred Callender's Calypsonians
Carib LP-2024

This album looks like another "island" lounge recording. Which it is. But the quality of this act is heads and tails above most Caribbean lounge records I've found.

While the group members are natives of the Caribbean this album features mostly Latin tracks, including a Samba, Cha Cha, Rhumba, Merengue and Bossa Nova.

The group consists of Fred Callender on bass, Edner Guignard (pianist and arranger), Frank "Bud" Munnings, drummer and Foxy Dean on congo drums and maracas.

Great fun!
