Terrace Martin Receives Classic Inspiration for “Tribe Called West”

Paying tribute.

In the run-up to his forthcoming studio album Velvet Portraits, Terrace Martin has been releasing nothing but heat. Today, he's continuing that streak with another new track. Taking inspiration from the legendary A Tribe Called Quest, Martin uses his latest as a way to pay tribute to an act that made him who he is. "Without A Tribe Called Quest there would not be a Terrace Martin," he tells FADER. Crediting ATCQ with introducing him to jazz, the west coast musician adds, "I wouldn't even be a musician because ATCQ is what made me want to play the saxophone." "Tribe Called West" will be featured on Martin's forthcoming LP, and features contributions from Keyon Harrold. You can stream "Tribe Called West" below.
