Henry Franklin

Tribal Dance (LP, Gold)

Label: Trading Places

Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

In stock


Los Angeles bass titan Henry Franklin is bestknown for the two Skipper LPs issued by Black Jazz in 1972-74; 1977’s Tribal Dance is more obscure and arguably the best of the bunch, the spiritual jazz given an extra propulsive dimension via the excesses of Sonship, banging complex rhythms on his elaborate self-made drums, as heard on the opening title track and the extended ‘Cosmos Dwellers.’ Elsewhere, ‘Eric’s Tune’ has flamenco undercurrents, ‘Spring Song’ is a slow piano meditation, and ‘Prime Move’ is all over the map. This sonic jazz journey engages the senses and is thoroughly excellent throughout – get your copy now!
