USA Marc Ribot, Jamaladeen Tacuma, C. Calvin Weston, Mary Halvorson -The Young Philadelphians Live In Tokyo (2016)

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. Marc Ribot enlists bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer G. Calvin Weston, both Prime Time alumni and Philadelphia natives, along with guitarist Mary Halvorson and a lush 3-piece section to the job.


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!!!
