Griot Galaxy ‎– Kins. Label: Black & White Records (6) ‎– B & W 001. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. Another copy came from Ann Arbor, along with the Opus Krampus LP which I'd already had a European CD of. I'm quite partial to Griot Galaxy, having seen them a number of times, both at the Montreux-Detroit Int'l Jazz Festivals and elsewhere around the Motor City. Ron DeCorte, who recorded and released the LP on his Black & White label, had 2,000 copies pressed in early 1982; they didn't sell all that well (I bought one).

Griot Galaxy was an avant-garde jazz band led by Detroit saxophonist and poet Faruq Z. Bey. The band was founded in 1972 with drummer Tariq Samad, bassist Jaribu Shahid, and saxophonists Bey, Anthony Holland and David McMurray. Their first recorded appearance is often cited as coming from a 1976 album by Phil Ranelin entitled Vibes from the Tribe. Bey is featured with Ranelin on a track called He the One We All Know with drummer Tariq Samad and David Abdul Kahafiz on zeetar.

In stock now for same day shipping. Here's another, from lesser-known quintet Griot Galaxy. Kins", their debut, was recorded over two days in September 1981 and originally appeared in stores early the following year on tiny imprint Black & White Records. This reissue replicates the original artwork and tracklist, with the cuts now sounding better than ever thanks to a tidy re-mastering job and extra-deep grooves

Griot Galaxy Kins Dustin Krcatovich, April 23rd, 2019 08:57. Griot Galaxy's Kins, originally released 1982, now re-issued by Third Man recordings is an under-heralded piece of essential Detroit music history, finds Dustin Krcatovich. As much as Detroit is known for playing a major role in the development of countless styles of music, from northern soul to techno, the city has never gotten its full due as a jazz hotbed. Whatever the case, an overdue reissue of that 1982 album on Third Man Records hopes to finally correct the record. In terms of presentation and intent, Griot Galaxy were not a band without precedents: their interest in science fiction owed an obvious debt to Sun Ra (with whom bassist Jaribu Shahid and drummer Tani Tabbal had played before joining Griot Galaxy), and the silver Afrofuturist face paint they often wore onstage most immediately recalled their peers down Interstate 94, the Art.

Griot Galaxy doesn't strictly begin with Kins. It begins with visionary bandleader and saxophonist Faruq Z. Bey's musical and political awakening in the late '60s, when the 1967 Detroit Rebellion was tearing Detroit apart and Coltrane's untimely death was devastating the jazz community. Kins, recorded in 1981 and originally released in 1982, is a masterstroke of creative Detroit jazz. The freeness of the playing is anchored by a serious propensity for rhythm, evident in the way its members layered their collective backgrounds in bebop, funk, reggae, and other styles within.
