|First (and very limited) reissue of jazz legend Wendell Harrison's 1981 album, ''Organic Dream.'' The deluxe LP is housed in a tip-on jacket with liner notes and photos. Purchase includes digital download.The album is quite a departure from the spiritual jazz Harrison is well known for, instead dipping into modern soul and R&B territory.|
Wendell Harrison founded the Detroit based spiritual jazz imprint and jazz collective Tribe Records along with Phil Ranelin. Harrison has well over 30 releases and is featured on numerous others by other jazz greats such as Grant Green, Hank Crawford and the great Sun Ra.
As a label Tribe spearheaded a growing black political consciousness. The group also included drummer and composer Doug Hammond, pianist Ken Cox and trumpeter Charles Moore. They performed together live and on one another's recordings releasing them on the label.
Wendell plays the clarinet, tenor, sax and sings for you on this remastered collectible. Funky experimental jams. Love how the song peace of mind builds from slow to upbeat with the sweet vocals sung by Miche Braden. This is some old school Detroit jazz.
