Leon Foster Thomas Finds His Voice

lft_0.jpg

  Leon Foster Thomas grew up in a musical household in Trinidad but steel pan  didn't appeal to him - at first. Ultimately the young percussionist taught himself to play the island's official instrument and found it's the best way to express himself.  Thomas talks about his musical journey from Trinidad to South Florida and beyond, details some steel pan history, and shares what it's like to be both a working musician and doting dad. His 2-year-old daughter Annecy is the inspiration for his latest album, "Brand New Mischief."

Every Monday through Friday night from 9:30 PM to 1 AM Tracy Fields presents some of the most diverse new and classic jazz anywhere on radio.
