Clyde "Lightning" George
Clyde "Lightning" George, was born in the same place, at the same time, as the steel Pan. Both shared humble beginnings in the hills of Laventille overlooking Port of Spain, the capital city of trinidad and Tobago.Lightning has spent his life between the jazz clubs of Chicago and the panyards of Trinidad. Lightning is a free bird and one of a handful of panmen who uses 3 or 4 sticks while playing, which adds to his quickness.
Recent Recordings: "Steelin' The Night", "Lightning Strikes The Heartland", "A Tribute to the Masters".

Rosemary Phillips has established herself as one of the leading Jazz Vocalists in her homeland, Barbados, and in the eastern Caribbean. Her singing is that of the accomplished professional in both established classics and Caribbean favourites, even gospel and she has recorded with Saint-Preux and the London Symphony Orchestra. English and French are her natural vocal languages. She does not shout, but sings, her lyrics clearly delivered with much feeling and great Jazz phrasing.

HISTORY OF "JAZZ ARTISTS ON THE GREENS": www.jaotg.orgazz events have become de rigueur throughout the world of international tourism, and the jazz festival concept has blossomed into big business. Though billed as jazz festivals, the majority of these events in the Caribbean have taken to packing their schedules with everything from pop to R&B in order to attract younger, broader audiences. In sharp contrast, Production One Ltd. has been successfully producing its flagship event, Jazz Artists On The Greens, annually since 2003 with an ear tuned to traditional jazz and its Caribbean variation.
Consistent with its vision of a professionally produced format that encompasses the delivery of a delightful mix of contemporary Caribbean Jazz entertainment and relaxation in an informal atmosphere, Production One Ltd. identified what has turned out to be quite a hit with its patrons – a most appropriate venue at the Centre for Creative and Festival Arts in St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. This open-air concert is fashioned to encourage patrons to “walk with their mats and festival chairs” and sit where they are most comfortable as they enjoy good company and good music.
The first show was held on 1st June 2003 and featured:
At the second annual show, held on Sunday 28th March 2004, in order of appearance:
On Sunday 13th March 2005 the line up was:
