Musician launches CD
Theron Shaw is once again the centre of attraction. The guitarist/composer/arranger, who consistently creates his music through persistent hard work and dedication, has collaborated with the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, and on January 6, launched The Theron Shaw Project, Right Here Right Now in Belmont. The latter is the name of his latest CD. According to Ayanna Holder, marketing communications officer of Fore Day Morning Production Company, and organiser of the show, “We have taken the launch of Theron’s album and turned it into a concert series.”
The series will be held on the first Thursday of every month and will include instrumentals, the spoken word, jazz and other genres of music. Shaw will be the main act. “We have taken jazz and gave it a true Caribbean feel. “We want to create an environment where the artistes and the audience can interact,” adding that the audience must feel musically nourished when they leave. Shaw would be backed by a four player band for the duration of the series.
In the first of two, 45-minute segments of the first show, radio personality Sterling Henderson gave a poetic piece in the form of, the spoken word. He explained that the piece was about strong imagery and repetition, and that it was meant to be intentionally mesmerising and a fun treat for the ear.
“It’s such a controversial topic that it in my view, has to be seen for more than what its about, but what it does to the listener.”
Shaw too reminded all of his versatility by playing some love ballads, kaiso and jazz. His songs of choice were, Not This Time, Carvanealdo, All Is Fair In Love, and Mauvais Langue. He was joined by Vaughnette Bigford for a duet that had the audience spellbound.
The next installment of the Theron Shaw Project will be on February 3.
