A unique collaboration between
the Northern Illinois University
Steelband and the Northern Illinois
University (NIU) Jazz Orchestra will
be webcast live tomorrow from 4
pm. The programme will feature
five collaborative pieces, in addition
to other works on the concert by
The collaborations range from a
Latin big band chart El Gatote by
jazz educator Matt Harris, Step Up by
NIU steelband co-director Cliff Alex-
is (based on the chord progression
to John Coltrane s Giant Steps), and
Andy Narell s pan classic Coffee
Street that he wrote for Skiffle, for-
merly Skiffle Bunch, and arranged it
for them in 1999.
Kareem "TJ" King, from Antigua,
currently in his second year as a mas-
ter s student in steelpan at NIU, and
graduating in May, arranged La Vida
es un Carnaval, by Argentinean com-
poser Victor Danial that had been
featured by Cuban singer Celia Cruz,
and Prof Reggie Thomas arranged
Joe Zawinul s piece for Weather
Report, D Flat Waltz.
The programme will also
feature Liam Teague s arrangement
of Kitch s Pan in A Minor, the tango
master Astor Piazolla s Concierto
para Quinteto as performed by the
steelpan majors studio and adapted
by NIU alum Yuko Asada.
The ensemble will also
premiere Spectrum---a steelband
composition in a minimalist style by
former NIU percussion grad student
and NIU steelband member Alexis
Lamb. The piece was completed last
year and will be conducted by
Trinidadian graduate steelpan student
and Fulbright scholar Akua Leith.
Over the years, the NIU Steelband
has featured pan players Len
"Boogsie" Sharpe, Robert Greenidge,
Ray Holman, Rudy "Two Left"
Smith, Andy Narell, Victor Provost,
Leon Foster Thomas, Freddy Harris
III, Gary Gibson, Andre White, as
well as Trinidad s own jazz trumpet
great Etienne Charles. The band pre-
viously collaborated with the NIU
jazz ensemble with Ron Carter at the
helm; they are excited to once again
work with these amazing musicians,
this time under the directorship of
the brilliant Reggie Thomas.
Thomas is the new head of jazz
studies at Northern Illinois Univer-
Co-director Teague is especially
excited about this concert.
"Reggie Thomas is one of the most
acclaimed jazz musicians in the world
and has really developed a deep love
for the steelband."
