About Ken ‘Professor’ Philmore

Ken Philmore is from the island of Trinidad and Tobago, birthplace of the musical instrument, the steel pan (a.k.a. steel drum). “Professor” is one of the top steel-drum soloists in the world. His fascination with the steel pan began when he was only four years old. In 1985, “Professor” did his first album – Our Heritage, which features a mixture of his version of jazz classics like Mr. Magic and Stardust, together with pan instrumentals of some popular calypsos. He has since produced seventeen albums, five of which feature lead vocals by none other than the “Professor” himself.

Ken has performed and recorded with a number of international artistes such as Tito Puente, Ella Fitzgerald, Phyllis Hyman, Nancy Wilson, Tina Turner, Andy Narrell, Ralph Mc Donald, George Howard, Lionel Hampton and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Ken was privileged to be the first Trinidadian artiste to be featured at B.E.T. Jazz Central.

To date, outstanding live performances continues unabated – Washington DC Pan Jazz Festival, St. Croix Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Barbados Jazz Festivals, Tobago Jazz Festival, Guyana Music Festival, Joy of Jazz Johannesburg, Boston Symphony Hall, among many others.

Ken’s impact on the pan arena has been nothing short of phenomenal as he continues to share his gift around the world.
