Singer DWIGHT TRIBLE, born in Cincinnati but resident in Los Angeles, has been working below the radar for years, during which time he has sung with Oscar Brown Jr., Pharoah Sanders (in whose quartet he is the featured singer), Charles Lloyd, Kamasi Washington and many others. Trible’s approach to jazz is rooted in both the spiritual and the psychedelic; in his improvisations and reinterpretations of the music of John Coltrane, he is constantly aiming for transcendence. And with his new album Inspirations gaining him new admirers, he has found another fruitful collaborator in the shape of Matthew Halsall. Peter Jones interviewed Dwight Trible following his debut at Ronnie Scott’s in May. Audio production by Harry Jones
