The Annette Philip Group bring a cover of Airto Moreira's "Tombo in 7/4" for a fine tribute which is moving rhythmically and emotionally in comparison to the original 1974 Jazz composition. Led by the beautiful vocals of Annette Philip, this version of "Tombo" is less funky and leans more towards the traditional sounds of Jazz while retaining the Latin musical context of Airto's composition. For their cover version, the quintet provides a heavenly combination of Rhodes and flute solos against lively singing and rhythm. The introduction of a female vocalist as a replacement to a male lends a more soothing sound as a great fit for the light-as-a-feather cover of "Tombo" by The Annette Philip Group.


"Annette Philip is an Indian vocalist, composer/arranger, recording artist and choir conductor who thrives on experimenting with the human voice. Believing in the power of collaborative action, she founded Artistes Unlimited in New Delhi, India, currently India’s largest and most diverse performing arts ensemble, with a rotating line up of over 250 artists. A graduate and current faculty member of Berklee College of Music, Annette has been privileged to share the stage with artists such as Airto Moreira, Buster Williams, Victor Lewis, Jack DeJohnette, Lew Soloff, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee, Shubha Mudgal, Barrie Lee Hall, Christian Jacob, Adam Nussbaum, Danny Gottlieb, and Reggie Hamilton, amongst others. Her quintet, 'The Annette Philip Group', seeks to collectively explore the music and ideologies of different countries, traditions, and cultures from around the globe, drawing from jazz, funk, Latin, Indian and Middle Eastern influences. Besides this, Annette is also performing with Boston-based vocal group 'Women of the World' and 'The Makanda Project Big Band'."
