Tribe

LP (Item 49141) Columbia, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

A very soulful batch of fusion tracks from drummer Horacee Arnold – here leading a group that includes reed talents Billy Harper and Joe Farrell, percussionist Ralph McDonald, guitarist Ralph Towner, and Dave Friedman on vibes and percussion. Tracks are long and spiralling, with a spiritual approach that goes quite out at times, but which also returns to a modal groove at others. Thanks to great playing by Harper and Farrell, the album's got a lot more soul than some others of the type at the time. Tracks include "The Actor", "Professor Moriarty", "Orchards of Engedi", "Tribe", and "Banyan Dance". (Cover has some marker on back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Between Nothingness & Eternity
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
There's a pretty big space between Nothingness & Eternity – but Mahavishnu Orchestra manage to fill most of it up with their hard-jamming approach! The style here is a bit different than the group's initial albums – as the record's a live one, and features some very long tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1956. Very Good
One of trumpeter Buck Clayton's true classics for Columbia in the 50s – long jam session tracks, with players who include Bennie Green and Tyree Glenn on trombones, Lem Davis on alto, Julian Dash and Coleman Hawkins on tenor, and Kenn Kersey and Sir Charles Thompson on piano. LP, Vinyl record album

Thrust
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
Killer electric work from Herbie Hancock – right on par with his groundbreaking Headhunters set, but a bit spacier too! The album features a Headhunters-solid lineup – with Bennie Maupin on saxes, Paul Jackson on bass, Mike Clark on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bluesmith
Verve, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Memphis Jackson
Impulse, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom! Those trademark Jackson vibes are firmly in place, but the setting is quite different from the staid sounds of the MJQ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Extrapolation
Polydor, 1968. Very Good
Most likely our favorite album by John McLaughlin – and one that features him in a wonderfully spare setting – alongside John Surman on saxes, Brian Odges on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums. The playing has a free and loose quality that McLaughlin would later lose on some his more fusion- ... LP, Vinyl record album
