POP Montréal et Public Transit Recording sont fiers de présenter la première
du show d'Andy Williams pour l'album Variations of Time. Andy est un homme
incroyable, un DJ exceptionnel et un historien en musique jazz. Cet album
représente des années d'écoute, de collaboration et de découverte de
musiques du monde entier. Clifton Joseph, le meilleur poète dub du Canada,
se joindra à Andy pour ce spectacle unique. Vous le connaissez peut-être en
tant que journaliste pour The Marketplace de CBC, mais ne craignez rien, sa
poésie est remplie de rythme, d'humour et de charme des Caraïbes.


MORE::
"Variations of Time" features such names as Amiri Baraka, Billy Bang, The
Return of the Medicine Man, Byron Morris, Avram Fefer, Corey Mwamba, Follow
Follow just to name a few.
The album covers a wide range of styles from the 70's to the 21st century
with the Hip-Hop outfit of "Karma & Lotus" and Dub Poet Alumnus Clifton
Joseph doing a piece called "A Chant for Monk".
All the proceeds for the EP & the LP go to Tyndale St.Georges which is a
Community Centre in Little Burgundy in the heart of Montreal. An area which
has gone through some difficulties with gang-related incidences which has
overshadowed the productive work of the Community Centre. The After School
program at TSG has been in existence for over 77 years which might be the
longest running After School program on this continent.

PLUS::

Variations of Time présente Amiri Baraka, Billy Bang, The Return of the
Medicine Man, Byron Morris, Avram Fefer, Corey Mwamba, Follow Follow, etc.
L'album contient plusieurs styles différents venant des années 70 à
aujourd'hui sous le nom Karma & Lotus. Également, le poète Dub Clifton
Joseph joue un morceau intitulé A Chant for Monk.
Tous les profits pour le EP & LP seront remis au centre communautaire
Tyndale St.Georges dans la Petite-Bourgogne à Montréal, un secteur qui a
éprouvé quelques difficultés avec des incidents liés à des gangs ce qui a
éclipsé le travail productif du Centre communautaire. Le programme
parascolaire de TSG existe depuis plus de 77 ans, ce qui en fait
possiblement le plus ancien programme du continent.


Dans les mots d'Andy: "I've had the pleasure of being the Educational
Co-ordinator for 2 years due to a leave of absense of their well known
Director Kim Kidder. It gives me great pleasure to give back to a Community
that has welcomed me with open arms. I'm also delighted in seeing how far i
can push the envelope in terms of developing their educational resources in
terms of admissions to some of Montreal's famous Private Schools for Higher
Learning. This sort of development is integral in making the young ones in
the community realize the importance of these rare resources. So with your
help and understanding i can further the work in determining a place for
some of the individuals in this community."
