O’s Notes: Leon Thomas plays the steel drums, leads the band, composed all of the music and produced“Metamorohosis. It’s a funky, contemporary set with festive Latin undertones, punctuated beats and crisp brass accents. The ingredients may sound familiar but the sounds are unique. Thomas speaks of maturing over time and he’s correct. While we’ve always appreciated the way he integrates the steel pans into contemporary jazz-fusion, he’s gained more poise and confidence over the years sharing the stage and playing with more feeling. The results entice listeners to come back for more, capturing different elements on each pass!
