8/10 Ant Staff review, 04 March 2010
Soul Jazz Records' sub-labe lUniversal Sound have a cracking compilation out documenting The sounds of Detroit's Tribe Records imprint. I'm fascinated with the rich musical heritage of Detroit from Motown through to Detroit techno (along with Chicago house probably my all-time favourite music ever). Tribe was born when the city's car industry was in decline which left the city with a void which years later would eventually leave much of the city in urban decay. Tribe's message, and words of wisdom: "Music Is The Healing Force" is universal and through Jazz they conveyed this sentiment perfectly. I must admit that all of the music on these records is entirely new to me. Artists/ players like David Durrah, Phil Ranelin, Doug Hammond, The Mixed Bag, Marcus Belgrave and Wendell Harrison really were a super cool unit of creative and forward thinking musicians. 'Beneficent' is a very sweet track with moving vocal that really sends shivers up the old spine. I imagine these tracks may well have possibly inspired the likes of Carl Craig (Who is now working with these musicians) and Juan Atkins in their younger days. Atkins once said: "Jazz Is The Teacher". Also included is a fabulous 60 page booklet that really gives you a sense of the social, cultural and political climate of early 70's black America. Some lovely postcards are also included in the package. It's an inspiring and wonderfully presented collection of quality Jazz funk… Some great players on here and some superb uplifting music.
