Review: Following in the Latin jazz traditions, Tribu (tribe in Spanish), brings the next continuum. With Afro-Caribbean mixed with American jazz flavor, this music brings the feel of Latin Jazz into the 21st century. The six members that make up the band have extensive backgrounds that position them to create modern Latin jazz
