Things are looking up for The Harlem Gospel Travelers, who return here
with a new album, a new lineup, and a new lease on life. Produced by Eli
Paperboy Reed, Look Up! marks the group's first full-length release as a
trio, as well as their first collection of totally original material, and it couldn't
have come at a more vital moment. The music still draws deeply on the
gospel quartet tradition of the '50s and '60s, of course, but there's a
distinctly modern edge to the record, an unmistakable reflection of the
tumultuous past few years of pandemic anxiety, political chaos, and social
unrest. The songs are bold and resilient, facing down doubt and despair
with faith and perseverance, and the performances are explosive and
ecstatic, fueled by dazzling vocal arrangements punctuated with gritty
bursts of guitar and crunchy rhythm breaks.
Born out of an non-profit music education program led by Reed, The
Harlem Gospel Travelers-singers Thomas Gatling, George Marage, and
Dennis Bailey-released their debut LP, He's On Time, to rave reviews in
2019, with Pop Matters hailing the album's "musical transcendence" and
AllMusic praising it as "dreamlike and joyous." The record charted on
Billboard, earned the Travelers high profile fans like Elton John (who invited
them to appear on his Rocket Hour radio show on Apple Music), and
landed them festival slots everywhere from Pilgrimage to Telluride Jazz
