Calypso Lore and Legend

71-year old Chinee Patrick Jones, one of the most famous old-time Calypsonians to pass through Port of Spain, tells stories from his singing days and sings old tunes. As Jones reminisces, Carnival 1956 rages throughout the city, and this recording offers the chance to sample tunes from the calypso tent. Also featured is the music of an early string band from Santa Cruz led by flutist Poposit.
