Summary

Arguably the best album legendary jazz musician Wendell Harrison cut in the 80s "Organic Dream" features the classic track "Love Juice". The album's quite a departure from the spiritual jazz he's well known for, instead dipping into modern soul and R&B territory.

Founder of spiritual jazz imprint and jazz collective Tribe Records along with Phil Ranelin, Wendell 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. Tribe also published a magazine, a quarterly monthly publication dedicated to musical and political revolutionaries and political issues. Tribe had pretty much disbanded by 1975 but through Wendell and Phil's efforts the catalog has found a new audience through reissues from various labels including "Searching For Soul" also on Luv N'Haight which was a collection of soul, funk, and jazz from Detroit.

Organic Dream is always high on collector's lists as a must-have from Wendell Harrison's catalog. Electric keyboards and vocals add to the usual mix of modern soul jazz with a sound closer to R&B. Other stand out tracks include "The Wok", "Ginseng Love", and "Peace of Mind". This is the first time the full album has been reissued and available on CD. The deluxe LP will be housed in a tip-on jacket with liner notes and photos and only available in limited quantities.
