Album Notes
Sugar Hill Harlem, NYC, by way of Stuttgart Germany: Monsieur Leroc keeps his Piano in nearly the exact same place in which Duke Ellington wrote his classic "Take the A Train". The only difference being one apartment floor in the old St. Nicholas Ave. building which they both have called home. This is where the neo-soul movement of today puts on its dancing shoes. In his third release, Monsieur Leroc pleads guilty with the working class title "I'm not young, but I need the money", but the sympathy stops there. Some where between DJ Shadow, and Jamie Lidell, Leroc doodlebugs into precise form with the albums opener "Cooley McCoolsen". You quickly get the idea that Leroc just wants you to get some, or get something.
"I'm not young, but I need the money" is deconstructed and reassembled by Leroc in his home studio in Harlem and also features many guest vocalists and musicians that add all new elements to what has now become a signature Monsieur Leroc sound. Guests include Josh Fischel from "Bargain Music", Los Angeles MC's: AWOL One, 2 Mex, and Radioinactive, German vocalist Lazlo Loco, and Brooklyn crooner Courtney Mace. Leroc's music has been used in such TV shows as Malcolm in the Middle, CSI Miami, and Commander in Chief. You could wonder what it would sound like if Curtis Mayfield used Pro Tools and had a penchant for Underground Hip-Hop or you could just as easily listen to the latest and greatest release from Monsieur Leroc.
