The Har-You Percussion Group's self-titled album stands as a testament to how exciting and profound music education can be for kids. Imagine creating this album as your homework assignment. That's just what these eleven 16- to 19-year-old boys did under the guidance of Jamaican-born percussionist Montegro Joe. Latin, Cuban, jazz, and blues influences combine to create their boogie-down melting pot of rhythm that keeps the feet moving. Tracks like "Welcome to the Party" and "Feed Me Good" are exciting dance numbers. In contrast, "Oua-Train" is an impressive tribute to Coltrane featuring Nelson Sanamiago on alto sax. This is a rare album where music informs its powerful sounds.

I first heard this group on internet radio station Jazz Musique, at and believed them to be a group of professional musicians, noting that their work had been remixed by Jazzanova, one of my favourite groups of all time. Then I read their biography and realized that they were teenagers. I am amazed. having studied percussion for 4 years myself, I am pleasantly supised. The originality of this work is unparalleled, while maintaining it's traditional percussive roots. If you consider yourself a fan of Latin music or Jazz in any sense of those words' meanings, you must own this album
