V./A. - Message From The Tribe (2004)
Rare Detroit Jazz/Funk from 1972-1976 compiled by the re-issue maestros over at Soul Jazz Records. Marcus Belgrave's track "Space Oddysey" features a bassline resembling Freddie Hubbard's Red Clay paired with intergalactic horns. Phil Ranelin's Vibes from the Tribe is easily the funkiest cool-out song on here (see if you can figure out which song Tribe Called Quest used this one on). One of the best re-issue compilations I've come across.
Genre: Jazz/Funk/moody soul+blues
