Waves gently lapping on a mystical shore ... creme de menthe on the rocks ... touches of fire and rain ... an equal mix of warm and cool. These, the subtle ingredients of Hagood Hardy & the Montage ... a truly talented gathering of six ... comprising Vancouver's Lynne McNeil and Toronto's Stephanie Taylor who give the group its unique vocal impact ... lead guitarist Bill Bridges (Calgary) ... bass guitarist Rick Homme (Toronto) ... drummer Dave Lewis (Kitchener) ... and from Oakville, Ontario leader/arranger Hagood Hardy, who shines equally on the vibes, marimba, electric and acoustic pianos and percussion effects.Hagood's impeccable musical taste stems greatly from his many years in the company of George Shearing (with whom he made 5 albums) ... Herbie Mann (5 albums) and Hawaii's Martin Denny (3 albums). In the 2 1/2 years since the Montage was born, H.H. & M. have been compiling an impressive list of credits via club and concert appearances in Europe, Canada, the U.S. and West Indies, also starring on the Barbara McNair and Like Young TV series. Their single recording ... Just a Little Loving ... was a Cash Box "pick of the week", and at this writing is still ... almost one year later ... high on most radio stations' playlists.
