Harold McKinney "Voices and Rhythms of the Creative Profile" CD

★First limited production
★Paper jacket specification
★Latest remastering

The only leader album released in 1974 by keyboardist Harold McKinney, who has participated in many famous TRIBE albums and supported the label's backbone, has been reissued with a new remastered version! Accompanied by some of the best horn players in the TRIBE/Detroit jazz scene, such as Wendell Harrison and Marcus Belgrave, this is a spiritual jazz definitive album that combines a jet-black groove and strong funkiness! The vinyl version is a special limited edition 2-disc set [LP + 7-inch] with the addition of "Ode To Africa (single version) / Jelly Loa," which was recorded as a 7-inch single at the same time, as a 7-inch bonus disc!

Harold McKinney, one of Detroit's leading keyboard players, has steadily built his career by playing with big jazz musicians such as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, and Sonny Stitt as a member of the house band when they came to his hometown of Detroit. He was also included in a series of releases from TRIBE, a label established in Detroit by Wendell Harrison with the aim of achieving true independence for black Americans, and was highly praised for his performances that captured the roots of black music such as jazz, blues, R&B, soul, and funk. This is the only album that Harold left as a leader, and it is a spiritual jazz definitive album with the best groove and strong funkiness among the many great albums released by TRIBE! This album is packed with highlights, from jazz-funk numbers with superb grooves such as the epic 9-minute song "Ode To Africa" ​​(M1), which begins with the wild beating of congas and spiritual chanting, and the classic "Freedom Jazz Dance" (M6) written by Eddie Harris, to "Heavenese" (M2) and "Dolphin Dance" (M7), which take you to even greater heights with a gospel choir overlaid on the groove by a chorus of eight people, and the aggressive human-powered breakbeats "In The Moog" (M4), which also evokes the connection to the Detroit techno scene of later years!
