Standard 180g 33rpm Vinyl LP with Obi strip
Liner notes by Mitsutaka Nagira
"A quintessential, forward-looking album that invokes themes of maternal love, family and transcendent spirituality." - LA Weekly
Dwight Trible is a rarity. Few singing careers involve performing with the legendary likes of Pharaoh Sanders, Kenny Garrett and Charles Lloyd, whilst also producing and innovating music with today’s hippest artists, ranging from J Dilla to Kamasi Washington.
His upcoming album, ‘Mothership’, is thus a true masterpiece. Trible’s voice, unrivalled in its passion and depth, is set against a background of spiritual riffs brought about by LA’s top jazz musicians, with Kamasi on saxophone no less. As arguably the world’s greatest living jazz vocalist, Dwight Trible is a legend in waiting - and it’s time he was heard.
