V.A. - MESSAGE FROM THE TRIBE (CD)


"Subtitled: An Anthology Of Tribe Records: 1972-1976. "Soul Jazz are re-issuing their long-out of print (10 years!) seminal CD and mini-book anthology of Tribe, the Detroit jazz and funk collective recently reformed by Carl Craig. CD and book comes in unique box edition. Tribe in Detroit in the early 1970s was born out of the ashes of a fallen city. After Motown, the boom of the car industry and the advances of civil rights in the 1960s, came a decade of governmental abandonment, high unemployment and inner-city violence and urban decay. Tribe (Phil Ranelin, Wendell Harrison, Harold McKinney, Marcus Belgrave) was a collective brought together to fight these negative forces. In the seven years it existed in Detroit, Tribe produced seminal deep jazz and funk albums, published Tribe magazine (featuring local community, music and arts issues) and ran numerous education workshops. Tribe have reformed in 2010, brought back together by producer genius Carl Craig with a new album and tour. This project follows on from Carl Craig's earlier Innerzone Orchestra and Detroit Experiment projects. Tribe is also heavily featured in Soul Jazz Records' Freedom, Rhythm and Sound book of revolutionary jazz. Soul Jazz Records are now re-issuing this Tribe anthology CD and mini-book (a 60-page exact reproduction of pages from the Tribe magazine from the early 1970s). This album features the best of the seminal music produced by this legendary Detroit collective." (label info)
