Dwight Trible returns with his masterpiece ‘Mothership’. This Los Angeles native who is described as the godfather of the LA sound has worked with everyone from Bobby Hutcherson and Charles Lloyd to Harry Belafonte. He is the vocalist with the Pharaoh Sanders Quartet and is also the vocal director for the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, a Los Angeles institution with a history stretching back forty years and an active engagement in the city's Black community since the Watts Uprising. Like his mentors, Dwight is not content to use his music to just entertain people, although he is a dynamic performer. He uses his music to bring people together, to bridge the gap between the races, and to heal the human heart.
One of the world’s greatest living jazz vocalists ‘Mothership’ does not fail to disappoint, timeless, yet made for our times, this is an album of spiritual jazz, soul, gospel and psychedelic rock.
Recorded at LA’s Sunset Sound and backed by a band of legendary musicians (including Kamasi Washington), this is a work of true beauty. A tour de force that reveals Dwight’s kinship with spiritualism.
