Sure Thing

The second subtitle of this steaming Soul Jazz Records sampler says it all really: Afro-Centric Jazz, Street Funk and the Roots of Rap in the Black Power Era 1969-75. Which basically means it's an essential listen of course. The obvious Gil Scott-Heron, Don Cherry, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago all make appearances, with some lesser-known greats adding the cherries to the cake. Take Tribe for instance, an out-there seventies collaboration between Wendell Harrison and Philip Ranelin.

Tribe - Benificent
