Note: Session consists of a single recording. The field log notes that the recording is “very poor” in quality and provides the following contextual information: “night spot – U.S.A. sailors”— suggesting a locale frequented by American sailors (Field Log). The musical genre is a calypso, and instrumentation is a steelband — i.e., an ensemble of tuned idiophones or “pans” made from metal oil drums. Calypso, as a Trinidadian rhythmical instrumental genre, is often associated with steelbands and carnival.
