  •  BAND: LOST TRIBE

      Lost Tribe
    Tribal rituals

    The state-of-the-art fusion band Lost Tribe reunites with guitar hero David Gilmore for one killer show at Makor.

    By MICHAEL BERRY

    Lost Tribe is the brainchild of alto saxophonist/composer David Binney. The group's scorching 1993 self-titled debut was produced by Steely Dan's Walter Becker and featured a powerful mix of infectious rhythms, funky syncopations and soaring melodies. With the in-the-pocket rhythm section of Fima Ephron on electric bass and Ben Perowsky (Dave Douglas, Jim Beard, Mike Stern, Liminal) on drums and samples, and the dual guitar team of Adam Rodgers (Randy Brecker, Bill Evans) and David Gilmore, two of the most creative and in-demand players on the New York scene, Lost Tribe established itself as one of the most powerful and creative voices in fusion in the post-Weather-Report era.

    After the departure of David Gilmore (who's since played with such heavyweights as Don Byron, Steve Coleman and Wayne Shorter), Lost Tribe went on to record two follow-up albums as a quartet. Although not as powerful as their debut, 1994's "Soulfish" and 1998's "Many Lifetimes" provided a steaming mix of rock, rap, jazz, fusion and funk as what is arguably one of the most creative working bands out there.

    On December 16, the original Lost Tribe (including Gilmore) and augmented by Jodi Howard will reunite for a performance at Makor on the Upper West Side. The $10 cover charge is a bargain for the jaw-dropping musicianship you will hear during this one-off reunion gig. Expect creative, funky interplay between Rogers and Gilmore, intricate grooves from Ephron and Perowsky and beautiful alto lines from David Binney as this exceptional lineup redefines fusion.
