The Manifest Tone journey began in 2004. During breaks from touring with Antibalas, New York City-born Chico Mann began crafting a more personal sound in his basement studio. A hybrid beast of culture and tone where Fela Kuti and Willie Colon meets Stevie B, Lisa Lisa, Afrika Bambaata, and Kraftwerk, it lives in a landscape shaped by Africa, Cuba, New York, and Miami. These unique experimentations led to the release of Manifest Tone Volume 1 in 2006 and eventually morphed into Volumes 2 and 3 that were finished in 2008 and 2010 respectively. What sounds on paper like a meeting of styles past in reality emerges sounding incredibly fresh and original -- a unique style Chico Mann has dubbed "Afro-Freestyle". This album represents the choicest cuts from Chico Mann's Manifest Tone, Volumes 1-3, that until now were only available digitally.
