PIANIST Adan Hagley is still savouring a milestone moment in his music career—the launch of his debut album Insomnia which took place last weekend at the Little Carib Theatre in Woodbrook. Joining him on stage for a night of live jazz music was a cast of multi-talented musicians from across T&T. Insomnia is a modern version of jazz calypso. The album which features seven tracks is a blend of different genres of music that has influenced Hagley.

At only 29, Hagley has already established himself as a pianist, composer, producer, arranger and teacher. He has also freelanced for some of the top names in the entertainment industry including Ella Andall, Vaughnette Bigford, Relator, The Mighty Shadow, Carlton Zanda and Andy Narell.
