Bandcamp just published a piece examining the continuing impact of the 1970s Detroit jazz co-op, Tribe…which reminded us of a draft we’ve had floating in the digital ether since last summer, re: UK spiritual jazzist Emanative‘s 2019 collaboration with co-op cornerstone Phil Ranelin. Covering the badassery of the trombonist’s own “Vibes From The Tribe” from 1975, the re-recording works (!) with Ranelin working in a lyric that rides just above the player’s funk.
The flipside of the 7″ sports a dub version. All proceeds from the recording benefit Gilles Peterson’s Steve Reid Foundation.
