The only archival recording
of the groundbreaking musical
Shuffle Along just won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Album Notes. TMTP/Harbinger Records is officially a winner!
1921’s all-black musical comedy, Shuffle Along, was the most successful Broadway show of its time. The score contained the future standards “I’m Just Wild About Harry” and “Love Will Find a Way.” It marked the emergence of a new black musical theater, and desegregated theatres in New York and across the country.
The new Broadway musical inspired by Shuffle Along opened to rave reviews with Tony Award-winning stars such as Audra McDonald and Brian Stokes Mitchell. Alongside the new production, Harbinger Records offers the only available archival recording of the groundbreaking musical. Learn more here!
