Last Friday, veteran jazz singer Dwight Trible released a new album, Mothership, on Gearbox Records.
The 12-track album is a lush, uplifting listen, recorded at Sunset Sound in Trible’s longtime stomping grounds of Los Angeles. The vocalist, who’s worked with the likes of Pharaoh Sanders and J Dilla, is in fine form—take “It’s All About Love,” where he moves from belting to scatting in seconds.
The album—Trible’s first US release since 2013’s Cosmic—features a few covers, including “Tomorrow Never Knows” (originally by The Beatles) as well as “Mother” and “Thank You Master,” both Donny Hathaway numbers.
Trible broke through in 2004 with the album Living Water, but experienced another career resurgence in 2015 when he sang on Kamasi Washington’s acclaimed album, The Epic. The saxophonist returns the favor on Mothership by appearing on the title track.
