Album Review

Tribaljazz certainly displays a lot of variety and versatility on their self-titled album from Hidden Beach. Some selections feature Art Ellis on alto playing hard bop, there are Afro-Cuban jazz numbers, a bit of folklyric music, and a couple of harmless rap pieces, including one that pays tribute to John Coltrane (with Ellis contributing some effective soprano-sax). Even Jim Morrison of the Doors makes a cameo appearance on "Riders on the Storm." In addition to Ellis, pianist Quinn Johnson takes a series of excellent solos, the percussionists are well featured, and the many vocalists do a fine job. Although not recommended to purists of any kind because there are several styles of music represented on Tribaljazz, sometimes on the same piece, everything they attempt works out. This CD is well worth checking out.

Customer Reviews

Awesome Album!

Wow. It's been a long time since I listened to a Jazz album as original as Tribaljazz. What a great group of musicians, ancored nicely by John Desmore on the drums (From the Doors) and a very talented Miguel Rivera on bass(who may just be the next Jaco). I really like the last track with Micheal Franti, what a great mix of sounds and talent. Buy this album, support artists like Densmore who refuse to sell out to big coorporations. You'll never hear a Doors song behind a Caddilac commercial, thanks to John! Can't wait to catch these guys on Tour!
