Don Drummond: Musical Genius

"He was a musical prophet created by the people, not one imposing himself on them in pursuit of stardom, but having it thrust upon him. Drummond observed their tribulations and aspirations then reshaped them into a blues allegory reflected through his compositions and plaintive trombone tone."

Thanks for this piece on the musical genius Don Drummond.As a matter of fact while cooking dinner today, I will be listening to some Don D. Nuff respect, Geoffrey!!
I've always thought more research-books should be written about Don D., so give thanks to James for this.

1Heart,
Geoffrey

Yes Geoffrey,the paucity of scholarly work(s) written on, or, about Drummond is alarming, especially, for one that/who occupied such saliency in Jamaican musicology.
