"where deco meets disco meets decon"
Join us for the US record release party for the new album "Live in Tokyo" to be released July 29th!
Jamaaladeen Tacuma, G. Calvin Weston, Mary Halvorson**, Marc Ribot: 4 professional, harmolodic noise improvisers with an uncommon love of Philly soul and hard groove. Forever young, forever Philadelphian, forever fixated on the moment before dance went digital. Stuck in the groove like a scratch in your favorite record. Ladies and Gentlemen…the hardest working musicians in punk/funk/soul/noise: The Young Philadelphians!!!
The Young Philadelphians pays tribute to twin legacies: The mind-blowing harmolodic punk-funk of Ornette Coleman's first Prime Time band and the sweet, optimistic pulse of 1970s Philly Soul. Ribot enlists bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer G. Calvin Weston, both Prime Time alumni and Philadelphia natives, along with guitarist Mary Halvorson plus a newly added 3-piece string section** to do the job. The album includes classics such as The Hustle, Love Rollarcoaster, TSOP...
**Chris Cochrane will be subbing for Mary Halvorson on guitar on the US dates
