Product Description

The Har-You Percussion Group's self-titled album stands as a testament to how exciting and profound music education can be for kids. Imagine creating this album as your homework assignment. That's just what these eleven 16- to 19-year-old boys did under the guidance of Jamaican-born percussionist Montegro Joe. Latin, Cuban, jazz, and blues influences combine to create their boogie-down melting pot of rhythm that keeps the feet moving. Tracks like Welcome to the Party and Feed Me Good are exciting dance numbers. In contrast, Oua-Train is an impressive tribute to Coltrane featuring Nelson Sanamiago on alto sax. This is a rare album where music informs its powerful sounds. ~ Ryan Randall Goble, Rovi

60年代末にコンガ奏者モンテゴ・ジョーの指導のもと、NYハーレムの不良少年更正プログラムの一環として、16〜19歳の若者で結成されたのがこちらのグループ。アルバム全編に渡って、ハーレムの猥雑な雰囲気たっぷりのエネルギッシュな演奏を堪能することが出来る。その中でも一際輝くのは、やはり”Welcome To The Party”。濃厚なラテンサウンドをお求めの方にぜひお勧めしたい一枚です。

Har You Percussion Group

In the late '60s race riots plagued major cities; in Harlem, these events forced educators to think of new and exciting ways to keep kids off the streets and interested in their education. Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited (the Har-You Act) was a series of educational programs designed for that purpose. The Harlem Youth Percussion Group grew out of that zeitgeist.
