Le Grand Tour–Paul Shaw Plays Caribbean Art Music 

In a solo piano recital of infinite variety, Jamaican pianist Paul Shaw guides the listener on a six-island tour of Caribbean Art Music with poetry, virtuosity and rhythmic exactitude. Shaw explores uncharted territory in Haitian composer Ludovic Lamothe's Feuillet d’Album and Jamaican Paulette Bellamy’s Improvisations on “Jackass a Jump and Bray.” 

He also navigates familiar waters, conjuring up the typical Caribbean vacation atmosphere in his own “steel drum” arrangement of the Jamaican melodic gem, Evenin’time. Stylistically, Cleophas R. E. Adderley’s Variations on a Theme by E. Clement Bethel circles the globe via the Bahamas. 

Shaw completes his Caribbean excursion with tributes to fellow Jamaican pianist and composer Oswald Russell and other distinguished composers from Curaçao, Puerto Rico and Cuba, including Ernesto Lecuona’s ever popular Malagueña
