CD Reviews

Scott Henderson is the man!
J. Rich | 08/06/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tribal Tech are: Gary Willis on bass, Scott Henderson on guitar, Scott Kinsey on keyboards, and Kirk Covington on drums/percussion. Tribal Tech are a jazz-fusion band of the highest caliber. This album "Face First" is the first album I heard by Tribal Tech and it is just nonstop, pee-in-your pants awesome music. When I heard the solo Scott Henderson did on the opening song "Face First" is just incredible. Hearing him I just want to rip my head off, because this man is just so talented and plays so intelligently I just am in awe. I mean Allan Holdsworth needs to take some pointers from Scott, because this man knows how to phrase, rip, and soar. I am sorry if someone disagrees with that statement, but that is the cold, harsh truth. Scott Henderson needs to be in the pantheon of guitar greats like Pat Metheny, Eric Johnson, and Al Di Meola. He is just as good as them, but he has a different style of playing of course. This album should be purchased if you enjoy intense jazz-fusion or if you want to hear another influencial guitar virtuoso of the past decade than look no further than Tribal Tech. This is Scott playing with Tech at his best I think. Oh and if you like this album I highly recommend "Illicit" and "Reality Check." Both are just as good or if not better in some ways."
Inteligent guitar

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The fifth cd in TTs' history is one of their best. The composistions are smart but still groove with an honesty that is lacking from the "new" jazz movement (Kenny G etc.). Scott Henderson plays in an harmonicaly rich style that never resorts to pure chops to engage the listener, while Willis continues to prove he is "the man" on frettless. If you dig Weather Rreport you will love this cd."
Some of the the best fusion ever played
Jazzcat | Genoa, Italy Italy | 07/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some of the best, most intelligent, acute, funny, interesting, groovin', catching fusion ever played. The opening track is a 7 minutes tune that is a fist in the face to those who believe fusion is music for elevators or caos stuff without any substance. This is spectacular electric funky jazz that can make a dead dance! Spectacular solos all around from every cat in the band. Incredible time from all the musicians. Interaction is really good. They seem a kind of Weather Report meets Hendrix, meets Trane kind of band. This release should show a badge on the cover: "Extreme material inside: handle with care". You'll never look at fusion music the same way."
