After stellar releases from Phil France and John Ellis. Manchester-based label, Gondwana Records drop yet another future classic this time from LA based spiritual jazz singer Dwight Trible. A key collaborator with the likes of Pharoah Sanders and Kamasi Washington, his debut release on Gondwana Records features label head Matthew Halsall on trumpet and production as well members of The Gondwana Orchestra. Let Trible and Halsall take you on a deeply soulful journey featuring brilliant reinvention of timeless songs such as Burt Bacharach’s What the World Needs Now Is Love, Donny Hathaway and Leroy Hutson’s classic Tryin’ Times, Cole Porter’s I Love Paris and much more.
