Yes, jazz at the beach! We thought it would be a cool idea to introduce to you our Barbadian musical discovery, Keith Campbell.

There’s not much about Keith Campbell on the web, but Campbell was one of the first Barbadian bebop jazz musicians. Crazy, we know.

Keith Campbell was a pianist and he learned to play many genres of music while living in Trinidad. At the time, soldiers were stationed there and this created a decent market for bands and musicians who could play the music that the soldiers liked. That is, of course, American jazz.

One of the songs in the new EPISODE is part of a Bajan LP called  BARBADOS HOLIDAYS VOL. 1 which Keith Campbell’s Orchestra (and Latin Combo) performed. We loved this LP at BT, give it a play!
