Tribe started a band, a recording company, and a magazine in Detroit in the early 1970’s. They were a legendary political, social, and aesthetic collective in this time. Bizarre enough as it is, techno legend Carl Craig has gotten some of the key players together to produce the groovy Rebirth album. The LP keeps the 70’s spiritual jazz up to date with a deeply respectful finish. It comes on heavyweight double vinyl with a gatefold cover. This LP is something I randomly stumbled over a few weeks back and has blown my hair back big time. A serious contender for the best Jazz LP of 2010 or late entry for last year.
