Germaine Scott & Friends – Charming Trinidad: Happy Times Vol. 3

germaine scott charming trinidad

Germaine Scott is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s finest electric piano players. The repertoire is a gourmet selection of timeless melodies – vocals and instrumentals in Swing, Bolero, Country & Western and Honky Tonk modes with ol’ time calypso jam sessions rippling with endless Nostalgia. Tico Tico, C’est si Bon, Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered, Danny Boy and Blue Bayou fit cosily into Germaine’s sixteen-track, concert-length eclectic brew that also includes six tantalising medleys. Trini hits of yesteryear – The Mighty Terror’s “The Monkey” and Lord Kitchener’s “Ol’ Lady” blend harmoniously with one of the world’s great Calypso bards, Andrew ‘Lord Superior’ Marcano’s rendition of an original entitled Charming Trinidad (composed by Germaine’s own grandfather George Cabral).

In co-operation with MAJOR&minor and Sanch Records.
