ハーレム・ウィークがやってくる!!

HARLEM WEEK 2016

Гарлем Неделя в ближайшее время

135th Street

Read in English

まだ6月ですが、ハーレムは夏の真っ盛り。また今年もアウトドアの祭典、「ハーレム・ウィーク」が始まります。幕開けは7月31日土曜日、「ア・グレート・ディ・イン・ハーレム」と題して大々的に無料イベントが開催されます。

いつものことながら、まだ詳細は未定、音楽パフォーマンスの出演者は発表されていません。直前にならないと誰が表れるかわりませんが、油断禁物、例年、わりと大物が参加しているのです。ちなみに昨年、2015年はアリシア・キーズが出て大盛況でした。ハーレムはアリシアの大好きな街、このお祭りが行われるメイン・ロケーションの135丁目は彼女にとっても忘れられない思い出の場所です。137丁目に住んでいた彼女の行きつけだったダイナーがレノックス・アベニューと135丁目の角にあった「パン・パン・ダイナー」。2003年のヒット曲、”You Don’t Know My Name” は、ここで撮影されました。その後、不審な家事で焼け落ちてしまい、残念ながら再建されることはありませんでした。

Alicia Keys 2015初日の7月31日土曜日はお昼過ぎからハーレムの各地でさまざまな催しが予定されています。新しいスケジュールをアップデートしていきますので「ハーレム2ニッポン」をチェックしてください。

ハーレム・ウィーク開催期間: 7/31/2016 – 8/27/2016

Ben E. King Tribute feat. Chuck Jackson&Lloyd Price

日本語

Celebrating its 41st year, Harlem Week kicked off this Sunday, July 26th with “A Great Day in Harlem” at Grant’s Tomb on 122nd Street and Riverside Drive. This event was FREE features live music, including a special tribute to Ben E. King who died on April 30, 2015.

Ben E. King’s longtime friend and peer, a legendary R&B singer in his own right, Lloyd Price performed King’s 1961 big hit “Spanish Harlem.” But one time a great crooner seemed to be struggling to stay on the right note. Price disappeared after one song. Maybe he is getting old (82) but it was disappointing just the same.

Chuck Jackson_1

Another great singer who equally chart topping acts in 1960’s Chuck Jackson came on stage and started singing his signature song “Any Day Now,” the crowd went crazy. Jackson, 78, 4 years junior to Price delivers dynamic, rousing version of his 1962’s great hit. He also dedicated “Stand By Me” to the late Ben E. King.

♪♪~When the night has come And the land is dark And the moon is the only light we’ll see~♪♪

We all sang along with Jackson’ rendition of “Stand By Me.”
