Okay, who do I see about getting a late pass? I’m just now checking out the music of Harriet Tubman, a black-rock trio I’ve known about for years.
The résumés of guitarist Brandon Ross (pictured), bass player Melvin Gibbs and drummer JT Lewis will blow you away. They roll with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Sting, Vernon Reid, Cassandra Wilson and Henry Rollins.
As Harriet Tubman, they’ve put out two albums in 10 years. But they’re streaming new material on their MySpace page... including one FREE MP3 (which you can download if you have a MySpace account).
Click here and put your ear to “Cant Tarry” on my Vox blog. Brandon Ross also does the singing.
