"DUALITY" Piano and Vocal LIVE CD
Dwight Trible sings / John Beasley swings
In 2010, two master improvisational musicians John Beasley and Dwight Trible came together to perform and record three duet concerts at the Redcat (Disney Hall), Boston Court (Jazz Bakery Concerts) and at a private concert series @ Mimi's Jazz Salon. Selected tracks from the live recordings is presented in "Duality," a duet LIVE album. "Duality" captures pianist, John Beasley and vocalist Dwight Trible re-imagining, re-interpreting and re-inventing eight jazz standards. Expect the unexpected with these fresh impressions on the tangled web of love, prejudice and life. The spellbinding poignancy of Dwight's voice and his instinctual spacing along with the intelligent, improvisational storytelling of John's playing finds you listening without a protective barrier around your heart.
Dwight Trible is a singer who combines the best of vocal virtuosity with musicianship and improvisational skills to the delight of audiences and musicians alike. In addition to performing with his group, The Dwight Trible Ensemble, Dwight is the vocalist with the Pharoah Sanders Quartet and the vocal director for the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra.
The Los Angeles Times aptly summarizes the essence of John Beasley in one sentence: "John Beasley, the one-time keyboardist for Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis, whose playing reflects a variety of generational influences, incorporating the emphatic chordal clusters of Herbie Hancock, the rhythmic quirkiness of Monk and the lush intelligence of Art Tatum into a highly refined personal voice."
Dwight's singing has the ability to drill down to the lyric's essence. The way he voices the chords is commanding and inventive taking us on an exploration of emotional terrain -- very ephemeral.
Great choice of songs some exploring bittersweet ballads and great performances by both John and Dwight.
John doesn't just accompany Dwight but sets his own emotional compass pushing the songs forward or illuminating the weight of the words.
These are bold imaginings of songs delivered in such a way that you feel the complexity of every note and the emotional undercurrents can leave you either wistful or smoldering.
