Wendell HarrisonDreams Of A Love Supreme (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wenha/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
Great later work from Wendell Harrison – a set that has the Tribe Records giant of the 70s taking the sound of the Detroit underground into a whole new vibe! The record takes the spiritual post-Coltrane jazz of Harrison's earlier days, and infuses it with some warmer, electric modes – a way of pushing spiritual jazz currents into other territory, a bit like Gary Bartz did with some of his work in the late 70s! Tracks are shorter and slightly less political than before – but the overall vibe is equally soulful in an 80s indie jazz style – and proof that Harrison was still keeping strong after the early days of the Tribe movement. There's some nice dark edges to the record that really keep things interesting – maybe imagine Larry Mizell producing some of the more off-beat albums on Strata East – and there's a bit of vocals on the set, which also features work from Phil Ranelin on trombone. Tracks include "Where Am I", "Sea Minor Blues", "Take Time Out", and "Dreams Of A Love Supreme". LP, Vinyl record album

Wendell HarrisonReawakening – The Wendell Harrison Anthology ... CD
Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A much-needed look at one of the greatest visionary players of the Detroit 70s scene – saxophonist Wendell Harrison, a really spiritual artist with a deeply soulful side! The set does a great job of bringing together the 2 sides of Harrison's career – his earlier righteous jazz sides for Tribe Records from the 70s, and his later work for his own label Wenha – mostly recorded in the early 80s with a laidback and mellow soul jazz sound! Harrison's a bit like Gary Bartz – in that he sometimes recorded in harder-edge styles with a really full-on sound, while at other times he could kick back and get more mellow – in a sweetly soulful style that often featured his work on the sax snaking around warm soul vocals. We actually love this second side of Harrison's career a heck of a lot, and the collection does a great job of pulling out the best of the best from this stretch – getting past some of the weaker cuts on a few of Harrison's 80s albums, to pull together the best ones – and sit them alongside a few tasty Tribe Records rarities! Titles include the 7 inch single "Farewell To The Welfare", plus "Consciousness", "Take Time Out", "The Wok", "Ginseng Love", "Pojo", "Tons & Tons Of BS", "Where Am I Vol 2 – Angry Young Man Part 1", and "Belle Isle".
