Stewart Goodyear's musical soul food


June 01, 2022

“One might say that Callaloo is my soul food,” Stewart Goodyear says. “A dish from the Caribbean composed of spices from different cultures, deliciously blended together.” Similarly, Goodyear’s composition, “Callaloo,” is named for the way his Trinidadian heritage expresses itself in Calypso — a blend of jazz, African and French influences. Steve Seel includes Goodyear’s music in a program that kicks off our celebration of African American Musical Heritage Month.
