"Quality tunes for intellectual rap heads and old school beat fiends". - Rolling Stone

"#1 Album of 2005" - San Francisco Chronicle

"An expansive, adventurous double album with a heavy jazz base and a firm foundation in hip-hop that should appeal to fans of Madlib and Lyrics Born".

Having in the past supported the likes of Roy Ayers, Fred Wesley, Gil Scott Heron, Don Blackman and James Brown (playing bass in the funk band the Big Cheese Allstars), it's no wonder that 6 foot 8 Englishman Charlie Tate's music sounds the way it does. A move to Oakland, California, in Oct '02, the purchase of copious amounts of second hand jazz and COLOSSUS was born!

For the lead single, The Tribute (as heard on Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz 5) Colossus gets down and funky with Om favorite Capitol A. This video is comprised of 1000's of photos taken entirely in Oakland, CA. 'The Tribute' rightfully pays homage to the roots of Oakland and the ever inspiring historical music scene.
