Show in a show
It was hard not to be amazed when Lowrey Leon Worrell unveiled his debut solo album effort on Wednesday evening. The Frank Collymore Hall has been the venue for many a show, but this certainly was one of the best of the month.
The versatile musician and teacher performed the seven songs from the album I Am Barbados, showcasing his songwriting, arrangement and composing skills.
Opening the show with a number simply titled Barbados, he ensured to highlight his love for his saviour and country during the near two-hour sunset concert.
While every number was well received by the sizable audience gathered, I Love You was perhaps one of the standouts. Led by Romaro Greaves on saxophone, the intricate arrangement took the evening to another level. Carried away by the music, Lowrey Leon rocked the crowd with a wicked solo on the electric keyboard.
Ole Time Days, which featured the linguistic talents of Adrian Green, was also a big hit. The song was a creative “call to arms” to Barbadians to be the change they needed to see.
The album also features the talented Andre Woodvine, Nicholas Timothy, Andre Forde, Julian Griffith and Shane Forrester, and some of them were members of the backing band, along with up and coming talent. (LW)
