Sonnets for Albert in the Seriously podcast series does a lot. First and foremost it is about relating to how you see your father and how your father whether he is there with you or not is still with you deep down in however many ways no matter however accomplished or not as a father he happened to be. Anthony Joseph, author of Kitch, is the presenter and relates his responses to Albert his father through poetry and commentary. Gregory Porter gives his memories of his own preacher father, Gregory's voice so iridescently interpreting the classic Horace Silver composition 'Song for My Father'. Anthony talks too to writer and friend Raymond Antrobus and to Trinidadian film-maker Mariel Brown on her own writer-father. It is beautifully weaved together. Poetry, the feel and flavour of documentary, personal experience, childhood memories, Trinidadian culture, soul, jazz and the island beat, thought hanging in the air land upright to illuminate variations of shared experience throughout and then resound.
