Rare songs from jazz collective Tribe collected on new Strut compilation

Tribe jazz band

Strut Records and Art Yard present a compilation bringing together the modern era recordings of Tribe, Detroit’s acclaimed independent jazz collective.

Tribe began as a musical ensemble in 1971 co-founded by Saxophonist Wendell Harrison and trombonist Phil Ranelin that soon expanded into a broad amalgam including a live collective and independent record label. Ignored for a long time by the mainstream, pathfinder label Strut attempts to correct this by putting their jazz fusion back in stores.

The ‘Hometown’ compilation places the spotlight on the later era of Tribe and Rebirth Inc., with rare and previously unreleased recordings from Harrison’s WenHa / Rebirth Studios and the SereNgeti Gallery And Cultural Center.

Hometown: Detroit Sessions 1990-2014, out November 8th via Strut. Discover the artwork below and pre-order the album now.
