Notes From The CD Booklet
Originally a member of the legendary Desperadoes Steel
Orchestra in Trinidad & Tobago, Denzil Botus' accomplishments in
music over the last forty years are some of the most impressive
in our field. Denzil served as the musical ambassador for
Trinidad & Tobago. He has performed all over the world with acts
such as Lester Booby and the Brass Fantasy and the Rolling
Stones in 1974 at Madison Square Garden.
In the early 1980s Denzil Botus formed "Real Steel" which
became a powerhouse, touring North America and winning the 1983
International Music Festival in Okalahoma. [It is] the only
steelband in [Boston] New England to win a competition outside
of New England…
"The 'A' Train" was produced by Denzil's Boston based
