Dwight Trible Releases New CD On Gearbox Records!
(Published: March 17, 2019)

Los Angeles CA, February 12, 2019 - Coming March 15, 2019 from Gearbox Records (UKD) is Mothership, the new CD from vocalist Dwight Trible - his first U.S. release since Cosmic in 2013!

As with most of Dwight's music love and peace are the foundation. He adds relationships to the mix with this new release and packages it all in his provocative signature jazz presentation!

Mothership's 12-song set is a mixture of familiar songs like Carmen Lundy's "These Things You Are to Me," Donny Hathaway's "Thank You Master" and "Mother," a gem of a song that Dwight used to sing with the late composer and pianist Nate Morgan. These classics blend beautifully with Dwight's original compositions to create a mosaic of timeless music!

Dwight has assembled an incredible group of Los Angeles based musicians - Kamasi Washington on tenor sax, Mark de Clive-Lowe on piano, John B. Williams on double bass, Ramses Rodriguez on drums, Maia on harp, Miguel Atwood Ferguson on viola, Derf Reklaw on percussion and Carlos Nino on hand percussion!
All have delivered magnificently to the sheets of sound that created the Mothership project!

Dwight launches the Mothership (his reference to the heavenly Father) set list in a very dynamic, soaring and scorching vocal fashion that burns with the passion that only he can evoke, sending a clarion message which is "Prepare to board!"

When you get on board the Mothership, know that you will be there with saxophonist Kamasi Washington! His emotional performance on this project is the perfect complement to every nuance of Dwight Trible's voice. With him on board the Mothership reaches heights that would not be possible without him! The musical navigator here is pianist Mark de Clive-Lowe whose performances throughout the CD are extremely inventive and imaginative.

With the general theme of Mothership being peace, love and relationships, "It's All About Love" (track 2) is a perfect example of all three of those aspects! Dwight's vocals are front and center, raising the art of jazz singing and scatting to new improvisational heights as he reminds us to "let love be our destiny" and that "love will always set you free." Amen!

With a theme that embraces and expounds on love, it is no stretch to include the love of one's mother. Dwight beautifully addresses that twice on this project. "Mother" (track 3) acknowledges the love, warmth, giving and sharing of "Mother" with a very soft and melodic approach accompanied by a mid-tempo trio!

On "Song for My Mother" (track 6) Dwight sings a very tender ballad about the nurturing mother who leads the way into all of life's true values! Both songs are certain to be Mother's Day staples!

"Brother Where Are You?" (track 4) features a haunting bass line on top of which Dwight compels a sought-after lost soul to stop wandering and come where there is "love in this house".

On "Standing in The Need of Prayer" (track 5), as Miguel Atwood Ferguson and his celestial sounding viola is introduced, Dwight confesses, acknowledges and makes personal his plea for prayer. Oh my - how powerfully rich and honestly he sings!

Dwight dramatically shifts vocally to the blues on "Thank You Master" (track 8) as he points to the heavenly master that provides all our needs! Dwight Trible's genre bending sound is on full display here! The blues will never be the same!

"Desert Fairy Princess" (track 9) is perhaps the greatest song of love and romance you may ever hear where harp, viola and soul converge! Perfect for Valentine's Day, wedding day or any day when one wants to express love. This song is Jazz poetry!

Finally, "Walking to Paradise" (track 10) parades a strolling bass line alongside sizzling vocal gymnastics, "These Things You Are To Me" is a fantastic love song destined to be a standard, and the equally tender love song "Some Other Time," all expose the heart, love and richness of Dwight Trible. He is the truth!
