ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Taking a page from the book of early 70's super groups, One Tribe Nation is an eclectic mix of world-class musicians inspired by multiculturalism, diversity, and the concept of a single world community. Based in Los Angeles the group was brought together by the vision of guitarist Michael Sanders. His father, the late Will Sanders, was a pianist/singer who played and sang with The Inkspots,Cab Calloway, Mercer Ellington (The Embers), and Count Basie throughout the fifties and sixties. Joining the Nation for this release are all-star greats like Luis Conte, (Eric Clapton, Madonna, Santana, Andy Vargas of Santana, JimmyRoberts (Rod Stewart, Rick Braun) and long time Rolling Stones backup singer Bernard Fowler, as well as touring members and session players for such artists as Pink, Black Eyed Peas, Ricky Martin, Frank Gambale, The Goo Goo Dolls and the Rembrants. One Tribe Nation can be "radio friendly" conforming to the station's playing timeframe as well as more lengthy pieces that explore several different styles of music in just one song. The result is an explosive and unique brand of high-octane, beat-driven progressive fusion." The thinking here is that simplicity is genius, but not always artistically essential. There is no shortage of simplicity out there and I don't always subscribe to the formula that you should be able to express your most heartfelt emotions in under four minutes. I think what we are doing has greater significance than that, mainly because this music is capable of bridging musical, cultural and generational gaps, really taking you somewhere", remarked Michael. Emotional intensity, catchy riffs, and overall good songwriting is what makes this record stand out not to mention the tension and synergy among these extremely talented musicians. The Nation currently resides in the New School Hollywood Renaissance that is taking place in the City of Angels. Michael's vision of a multi-cultural celebration of artistic expression has begun to take shape, and is now fully realized in the context of his debut album, "Servants Of A Lesser God".

A Must Have
If you like the real deal, this is it! How come people dont make records like this??? Maybe record people should listen up. This band is going to turn alot of heads. The lineup is amazing... studio all stars. Great melodic riffs and killer musicianship across the board make this CD a must have in any collection.

Amazing guitar work with exciting rythms
Being a Santana fan I heard Andy Vargas [Santana vocalist] was on this so I checked it out. I was blown away by Sanders' guitar work, he not only uses incredible skill but uses alot of immagination. The musicianship is amazing all accross the CD, if you like Vai, Santana, Hendrix etc.. check this out you will love it.
