Pineapple Chow

Chunks of fresh pineapple are marinated in various spices including lime juice, chadon bene (similar to cilantro), garlic, salt, pepper, and hot peppers in this Trini recipe. This tune is a catchy soca in F major and is a great choice for less experienced ensembles. The rhythms are accessible and the simple solo changes provide a great vehicle for beginning improvisers.
