A journey and lesson in pan


T&T - Steelpan Recollections is Sherman Fyfe’s latest book, one in which he gives an account of his life and experience in the pan world. Fyfe takes the reader through the movement from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s to present day, but admitted in the book that the events are not chronological. He also said some of the content was told to him by others who grew up with him. This is Fyfe’s fifth book, one which is completely different from the first four. He describes the others as instructional books on the tenor pan, the double tenor, the double second and advance pan (notation).
