NEW COOL COLLECTIVE – TRIPPIN’ REDUX (FEATURING TONY ALLEN)

https://newcoolcollective.bandcamp.com/album/trippin-redux-featuring-tony-allen

Our dear friend Tony Allen was going to turn eighty this year. To celebrate this we had planned to release a new rendition of the recordings we made with him about fifteen years ago. To congratulate him on his birthday, to wish him well for the future and to remember our joyful meetings.

Sadly, fate decided differently. Tony passed away suddenly. The numerous obituaries and personal stories from around the world show how special Tony had been. He was one of the founding fathers of Afro Beat, but his influence reached far beyond that.

To celebrate his contribution to music in general and to acknowledge the importance of our collaboration for our development as a group we feel we still should release this material. This is our tribute to Tony, who was not only a fellow musician, but also a mentor and a real source of inspiration.
