The Silent Sea *FOCUS TRACK*
Terry Manning was already a world-renowned music producer and recording engineer when he came to The Bahamas in 1992. He has worked with such musical artists as Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Joe Cocker, and countless others. For 20 years since, he operated the famous Compass Point Studios in Nassau, along with partner Chris Blackwell, recording such music luminaries as Shakira, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, Jimmy Buffett, and many more. But Manning's first love has always been in the composition of original music.
The Silent Sea is our constant Bahamas companion, omnipotent, everlasting, understanding. We can tell it our deepest secrets of sadness, happiness, unrequited love ... safe in the knowledge that it will remain silent on our behalf. And then, sometimes, it speaks back. The Sun Dance in late November in The Bahamas comes to us from such a beautiful angle, lower in the southern sky, but still strong. When the sun's rays dance, filtered through the leaves of a Poinciana tree gently blowing in the breeze, amazing textures can develop.
