Wade Austin and Adriano Rossetti

Wade Austin and Adriano Rossetti

A contemporary take on steel pan, jazz and world music with an exciting, dynamic cultural ensemble.


Steel Pan Fusion is driven by the powerful engine of drummer Sam Blue Agard and bassist Liam Joseph while percussionist Phillip Harper increases the rhythmic momentum with his array of congas and cowbells. Keyboardists Andre Louis and Joe McGrail add expressive harmonies and countermelodies to the arrangements, and saxophonist Adriano Rossetti-Bonell enriches the themes alongside two carefully deployed Steel Pan players, David Vine and bandleader Wade Austin. All of the aforementioned prove to be very agile soloists, and they are well served by strong material such as Louis’ Find Your Inner Self, Vine’s Beach Bum and Austin’s title track.


The flavour is in the fusion and the fusion is in the family.
