"Ellie Mannette, a Trinidadian musician known in the United States as the father of the modern steel drum, died on Wednesday at a hospital in Morgantown, W.Va. He was . . . among the first to fashion a steel drum that had all the notes of the chromatic scale, so it could play any melody in any key."
