Russ Henderson - Caribbean Carnival (Tropical jazz, 1966)

(Allegro ALL 817).

Russ Henderson, piano and steel pan player, moved from Trinidad to England in the 40s. For this LP he gathered musicians from West Indies to play some really fresh and rythmic versions of calypso and blue beat standards.

Another (good) example of West Indies diaspora playing jazz in a pure caribbean style.
