All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Tribaljazz certainly displays a lot of variety and versatility on their self-titled album from Hidden Beach.

In addition to Ellis, pianist Quinn Johnson takes a series of excellent solos, the percussionists are well featured, and the many vocalists do a fine job. Although not recommended to purists of any kind because there are several styles of music represented on Tribaljazz, sometimes on the same piece, everything they attempt works out. This CD is well worth checking out.
