Cosmic Vibrations—the Los Angeles-based ensemble led by Dwight Trible—have released their debut album, Pathways & Passages.
Cosmic Vibrations have been performing live together for the last three years now, and this new, 11-track album—recorded in 2018—is their first studio release. It comes a year after Trible released his own album, Mothership.
Besides Trible (vocals/kalimba), Cosmic Vibrations are John B Williams (acoustic bass), Derf Reklaw (percussion/flute), Pablo Calogero (tenor saxophone/bass clarinet/woodwinds), Christopher Garcia (percussion) and Breeze Smith (drums/percussion/loops). Guests on the record include Scott Fraser on lap steel guitar on “Motherless Child” and Tony Green on upright bass and cello.
Half the proceeds of Pathways & Passages’ sales on Bandcamp go directly to the artists, according to the album’s description on the platform. Check it out here:
