The Journey and Impact of Pan on the Move

‘The Journey and Impact of Pan on the Move’ marks the 50th anniversary of the pioneering work of Ray Holman whose composition of “Pan on the Move” was the first “own tune” composed by a steelpan arranger back in 1972. This move presented the idea that pannists/ arrangers could compose their own music for the instrument, and caused a ripple effect in the pan world which gave rise to the likes of Dr. Len “Boogsie” Sharpe and others composing and arranging their own music.
