Tribal Tech

Tribal Tech - Salzburg (Live April 2nd, 1996) - 1996 - unof.

Tribal Tech is a virtuoso progressive jazz fusion band, formed in 1984 by guitarist Scott Henderson and bass player Gary Willis. From 1993 onwards the band included Scott Kinsey on keyboards and Kirk Covington on drums. From 1985 to 2000 the band released nine albums fusing elements of blues, jazz, and rock. Tribal Tech disbanded after releasing their "Rocket Science" album in 2000, but got together in 2010 to record their "X" album released in 2012. All band members are acclaimed musicians in the jazz rock/fusion world and all their albums are worth checking out. Floridian guitarist Scott Henderson has been quoted as saying that he is a "blues player at heart" and much of his music is based on blues, jazz, and rock influences. His early years were influenced by rock, blues, funk and soul, and his later jazz influences included artists like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. The tracks on this album were recorded live in Salzburg, Austria, on April 2nd, 1996. The tracks are complex at times but very listenable with odd-meters and great intertwining rock and bebop lines. BuyTribal Tech's classic "Thick" album and support jazz fusion at it's very best [All tracks @ 320 Kbps: File size = 240 Mb]
