Tramp Records’ third release in the recently established JAZZ DANCE SERIES is not a re-issue from back in the day but a jewel from a new band which has been featured on the Contemporary Jazz compilation released earlier this year. The Cultures of Rhythm, a New York based collective of experienced young players from a variety of musical backgrounds, brings many influences to their sound. Comprised of current and former members of the Duke Ellington Orchestra, French Kicks, Isley Brothers, Mofro and Kevin Jones & Tenth World, diversity is the groups greatest asset. Playing from deep within the history of their instruments, they stroll, strut, and dance through swing, jazz, second line, blues, funk, boogaloo, and rock. – SC
