Alston Jack - Renowned Steelband Arranger & Composer

An Exclusive Interview

Global - “I was nine years old. When I was twelve years old, I started to arrange for a band, the Tobago All Stars, the same band that I started with when I was nine years old. That’s three years later. I was arranging for the same band and took them to competition. That was in 1962... I came to the United States in 1969, with the Desperadoes Steel Band. The government of Trinidad and Tobago gave us, all the band members a scholarship to do music at the Third Street Music School in Manhattan.”  -- Alston Jack
