Live at the House of Tribes is an album by Wynton Marsalis released in 2005. The performance was recorded in December, 2002 in front of fifty people at a small community theater space in New York's East Village.[1]


Allmusic's Matt Collar rated the album four stars and stated, "Loose, swinging, funky, and spirited, Live at the House of Tribes is an absolute joy."[2] Jazz critic Ben Ratliff of the New York Times says of the album, "Throughout the record, the playing almost never goes outside of tonality, and the rhythm section holds fast to swing. But swing brings out the best in these players; the music is fully alive and afire with ideas. It makes you want to have been there."[3]
