2 in stock


Steelin’ The Night by Clyde “Lightning” George is a live┬árecording from Chambers in Chicago.

Clyde “Lightning” George has enjoyed jazz jams at Chicago Clubs since 1980, after moving to Chicago from Trinidad.
The jam sessions presented on this CD are led by John Bany.
John, also known as Granpabass and the Chicago Jam King, first met Clyde in 1981. It was the first time John had a steelpan in one of his jams and he loved it. Since then, John and Clyde have enjoyed hundreds of jams together. John says “Clyde understands the music and the jam protocol. He always brings a spark to every jam he joins.”

George Bean, on trumpet in all selections on this CD, has been jamming with Clyde since the ’80s along with John. When Clyde steps away from his pans during a session, you will likely see George stand behind the pans blowing his horn into the notes of the pan “I love to hear the tones reverberating back from the pan notes. The pan is an exciting, new jazz instrument and Clyde is a great player” George Bean said.

The jazz artists heard on this CD are legends themselves:
John Bany, George Bean, John Young, and Don Stille.
