土曜日の夜、DJアラモと過ごしませんか

READ IN ENGLISH

ハーレムの住人で元ブランド・ヌビアンのDJアラモがハーレムの人気スポット、「コーナー・ソーシャル」で毎週土曜日DJを始めました。

ここのお店、当初は「レノックス・ソーシャル」という名前でした。が、ちょっと待った!老舗の「レノックス・ラウンジ」から‘紛らわしいので店名を変えてほしい’と圧力がかかったらしいのです。お互いハーレムで商売を営む同志、ここで事を荒立てないほうがいいと判断したのか、「レノックス・ソーシャル」側が妥協したかたちで急遽「レノックス」を「コーナー」に入れ替えて「コーナー・ソーシャル」として新規スタートしました。オープンの初日から大盛況、店名が変ったことで客足が減ることもなく毎晩賑わっています。

サタデー・ナイトをさらに盛り上げているのはDJアラモです。自分が在籍していたグループ、Brand Nubian, A Tribe Called Quest, Mary J. Blige などオールド・スクール・ヒップホップやR&Bを爆音でかけています。お向かいの「レッド・ルースター」も負けてはいません。オバマ大統領も訪れたセレブ・シェフ、マーカス・サミュエルソンのレストラン、地元の有力者たちが集うスポットだけにDJがかける音楽はファンクやソウルが中心です。”Soul Makossa,” “Funkin’ For Jamaica” など、週末の夜にふさわしいパーティー・ソングがハーレムのストリートに響きわたります。

あなたも炸裂するネオ・ハーレム・ルネッサンスを体験しませんか。

DJ Alamo Spinning @ The Corner Social

Corner Social quickly became the new “in” spot as the newest addition to Harlem’s  Lenox Avenue Restaurant Row, and now the “social-izing” has reached a fever pitch with DJ Alamo spinning on Saturday nights.

Located across the avenue from Sylvia’s at the corner of West 126th Street, the vibrant restaurant/lounge opened on March 17, 2012 to protests of possible copyright infringement from the nearby Lenox Lounge. Rather than begin a legal fight, owner Anahi Angelone did not hesitate to change the name, and Corner Social has been constantly packed with a new sidewalk café doubling its capacity.

Corner Social is continuing the revitalization of Central Harlem, and along with Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster and Chez Lucienne, it is a new cornerstone of the Neo Harlem Renaissance!

“First Lady of the Flute”
Bobbi Humphrey Performing Live at Ginny’s Supper Club

Bobbi Humphrey has been named “First Lady of the Flute” by the critics and listeners alike and, from the accomplishments in her musical career, deservedly so. For three decades now, Bobbi Humphrey has been playing her special brand of music to audiences around the world.

Humphrey’s professional career began in 1971 when she was the first female signed to Blue Note Records. Certainly a lady playing a flute must have seemed something of a novelty then. Humphrey proved, however, she was not just a first or novelty, but a talent to be reckoned with. For in 1973, her LP, Blacks and Blues was not only a huge commercial success, but established a strong crossover market for her. Also, in 1973, she was invited to the prestigious Montreux International Music Festival in Switzerland where Leonard Feather, noted critic of the Los Angeles Times, acclaimed her the surprise hit of the festival. Since then Humphrey has continuously proved her sustaining power, for today she is the only successful female urban-pop flutist on the scene. Further proof is the fact that she was acclaimed Best Female Instrumentalist (1976 and 1978 to both Billboard and Record World, and Best Female Vocalist in Cashbox.) This is certainly a milestone for any instrumentalist.

Bobbi Humphrey

Born in Marlin, Texas and raised in Dallas, Humphrey’s training on flute began in high school and continued through her years at Texas Southern University and Southern Methodist University. It was there that Dizzy Gillespie spotted her when he served as a judge in a school-wide competition. With Gillespie encouraging her to pursue a career in New York City, Humphrey wrote a letter to New York’s famed Apollo Theatre and received a telegram soon afterwards telling her, “We have reserved a spot for you on Amateur Night.” She didn’t take further convincing, nor did she have trouble finding her spot in the music industry. The title of one of her Epic LPs, “The Good Life”, best describes her career.

Humphrey has played with the best, ranging from Duke Ellington (her third day in New York) to Lee Morgan to Stevie Wonder (featured on Songs In The Key of Life LP in 1977). Between 1971 and 1976, Bobbi recorded six albums for Blue Note Records. In 1974, she recorded the successful Satin Doll LP. 1977 was another big year for Humphrey. For the third consecutive year she was voted Best Flutist in Ebony Magazine Readers Poll. She was signed to Epic Records and released Freestyle in ‘78, followed by The Good Life in ‘78. Whether it is from the stage of Carnegie Hall or an intimate jazz room in Europe or Atlanta, live performance remains her first love.
