“Carpe Diem” (latin for seize the day…and that’s what this tune does), has
a little bit of everything for the steel band. Very upbeat, a blast to play, and
each section in the band gets a time to shine! Nice dynamics in the middle
of the tune give way to a Latin jam that climaxes to end the tune.
This one was a favorite of ours and of our audiences. So much so that we
named one of our CDs after it. Carpe Diem…seize the day, was and is my
motto for life!
