ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Galt MacDermot is best known for the music he wrote for HAIR, and his Tony Award-winning score for Two Gentlemen of Verona. MacDermot's work spans the gamut of performing arts; musicals (HAIR, Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Human Comedy), ballet scores (La Novela, Salome), film scores (Cotton Comes to Harlem, Fortune and Men's Eyes, Mistress), chamber music (Wind Quintet), the Anglican Liturgy (The Mass In F), poetry (The Thomas Hardy Songs), drama accompaniments (The Sun Always Shines for the Cool, The Shooting of Dan McGrew), and band repertory. He draws inspiration from a wealth of musical scores, crossing the boundaries of jazz, folk, gospel, reggae, and classical styles.

The son of a Canadian diplomat, Mr. MacDermot was born and raised in Montreal. After attending Bishop's University, he received a more extensive musical education at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and then moved to New York in 1964. Three years later, MacDermot wrote the music for the landmark Broadway production of HAIR which he later adapted for the screen.

MacDermot formed the New Pulse Jazz Band in 1979, which features his original music. Accompanying him are six dynamic musicians: Bernard Purdie (drums), Wilbur Bascomb (Fender bass), John Frosk (trumpet), Allen Won (soprano sax), Patience Higgins (sax) and Vince MacDermot (trombone). The New Pulse Jazz Band combines the lyricism of the best musical theater with the rhythms of classic jazz and soul to create a uniquely captivating sound.

Galt MacDermot's music has also found a new venue with rap artists who find his rhythms perfect for setting their lyrics, as in Run DMC's Grammy award-winning "Down With The King," and Billboard's top chart-buster, "Woo-Hah!! Got You All In Check" by Busta Rhymes (from Martine's Movie/Woman Is Sweeter). Galt and his band perform each year at Weill Hall, Carnegie Hall, to a sold-out crowd. For information about this concert, call 1-800-497-1691.
