Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tribe/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $21.99
One of the most righteous albums ever issued by the always-righteous Tribe Records label of Detroit – a really collective effort, one that features ensemble vocals and spiritual jazz – all pulled together by pianist Harold McKinney! The album showcases a group named Voices Of The Creative Profile – formed by McKinney to accompany his Creative Profile instrumental group – and the overall style is a great blend of spiritual soul jazz that gives equal time to the voices and instruments in the set. Gwen McKinney heads up the vocal ensemble, and other players on the set include Wendell Harrison on flute, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Billy Turner on percussion, and Ed Pickins on bass. Also features some cool moog from Darryl Dybka – and titles that include "In The Moog", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Dolphin Dance", "Heavenese", "Ode To Africa", "Out Of The Blues", and "Cornerstone". CD also features 2 bonus tracks pulled from a single – "Ode To Africa" and "Jelly Loa". CD

Wendell HarrisonReawakening ... CD
Rebirth/Octave (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $21.99
Later work from reedman Wendell Harrison and the Tribe Records scene – a set that's got a slightly tighter feel than some of his earlier work, but still a relatively soulful vibe overall! Harrison leads the group on tenor, flute, and clarinet – but there's definitely a collective vibe to the music – which also features Harold McKinney on piano, Phil Ranelin on trombone, and Ralph Jones on soprano sax – part of a shifting lineup of artists who change from track to track – including Leon Thomas and Pamela Wise, who each sing a bit on the record. Thomas appears on the great tracks "Where Am I" and "Love Dream", both of which have a great mellow soul jazz vibe – and other cuts get a bit more out, and have more of the soaring spiritualism that got the Tribe scene going in the early 70s. Other titles include "Tons & Tons Of BS", "Winter", and "He's The One We All Knew". CD

✨✧ Leonard KingLater Then Is Latter Now (3CD set) ... CD
Uuquipleu, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the many strong jazz contributions that drummer Leonard King has brought to the Detroit scene from the 70s onward – as a musician who both continues the earlier spirit of righteous groups and soulful combos in that city! The package features unissued material from a variety of different groups that King led or performed with over the span of 20 years – material that's different than other CDs he's issued by these acts – and which, taken together, really blow us away with the scope of sounds in the mix, almost all of them deeply spiritual, and often quite funky. The 3CD set features almost two full discs of work by the excellent Strata Nova ensemble – plus more from The Imports, Synchron, Oopapada, Trinidad Sanchez, and Ron Allen – with players who include Glenn Myrick and Faruk Z Bey on tenor, Ron English on guitar, Pamela Wise Harrison and Billy Wooten on piano, and Harold McKinney on piano and vocals. Those musicians really tie the set back to older Detroit experiments on the Tribe Records and Strata labels – and titles include "We Gone Baby", "Pay Toilets", "Flor Y Canto", "For Black Poets Who Think Of Suicide", "Coming Nations Fanfare", "Moors", "Hijack", "Walkin With Dave & Rodney", "Libra's Longing", "Drums For Ali", and "Funkytaneously".

✨✧ TribeHometown Detroit Sessions 1990 to 2014 ... CD
Strut (UK), 1990/1995/2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A return to greatness for the legendary Tribe Records scene in Detroit – an underground movement that gave us some spiritual jazz classics in the 70s – then kept on making wonderful music at an even more underground level as the years went on! This set is a collection of work from three rare recordings issued during that time – all on CD only, and representing a maybe even more obscure side of this legacy than the Tribe albums of the 70s! First up is trombonist Phil Ranelin – heading up a group that includes Wendell Harrison on tenor and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – two key Tribe partners from the early years – really stretching out on the titles "He The One We All Knew" and "Freddie's Groove", both recorded in 1990. Next is material from a 1995 performance led by pianist Harold McKinney – a set that's got an incredible depth of imagination and soul, almost as much as Harold McKinney's work of years back! The group is a wonderfully hip one – with former Tribe artists Wendell Harrison on tenor and clarinet and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – plus additional players who include Kiane Zawadi on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, Francisco Mora on percussion, and Jimmy Owens on trumpet. There's a bit of vocals, but never that much – and most tracks are long and open – freely exploratory, but never too far out or avant-styled – just soulful and spiritual, in the true Tribe Records tradition! Titles include "Wide & Blue", "The Slave Ship Enterprise", "Juba", "Libra Ahora", and "Conjure Man". Last is a set of tracks recorded in 2014 by keyboardist Pamela Wise – a record that really carries forward the Tribe Records spirit from the 70s! The overall approach is a bit more contemporary, but the set's still got all the best feel of a classic indie album from the underground – played and penned by Wise in close collaboration with reedman Wendell Harrison, a frequent partner of Pamela's on a variety of projects, and one of the driving forces of Tribe back in the day! Wise plays both acoustic and electric keyboards, and sometimes sings just slightly – although most of the album is instrumental – and in addition to Harrison's work on tenor and bass clarinet, the album features trumpet, guitar, and lots of percussion. Titles include "Ode To Black Mothers", "Hometown", and "Marcus Garvey". CD
